Mason County: Online open house for two roundabouts planned for SR 3 at Deer Creek

BAYSHORE – Beginning Wednesday, March 23, community members can learn more about safety improvements on State Route 3 in Mason County during an online open house.

Two new single-lane roundabouts will replace stop signs at two intersections – East Agate Road and East Pickering Road.

Feedback during the online open house will help with the final design of the roundabouts. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2024.

Roundabouts help reduce the potential for crashes while keeping people moving. WSDOT routinely reviews intersections in rural areas on the state highway system to find ways to reduce potential collisions.

Future roundabout locations

  • SR 3 at East Agate Road
  • SR 3 at East Pickering Road
