Information available both online and at a Feb. 13 in-person open house
BELFAIR – Community members are invited to participate in an online and/or in-person open house to learn more about a proposed new corridor between Kitsap and Mason counties.
The Washington State Department of Transportation is inviting the public to share feedback about the proposed State Route 3 freight corridor. This 6-mile roadway is intended to provide a new option for people to travel around and not through Belfair. The project will improve travel times for regional through-traffic, reduce the volume of regional traffic in Belfair and help reduce the potential for collisions.
Public input is an important part of the environmental review process. The project is expected to begin construction in Spring 2026.
