Crews will create a new route for SR 3 while maintaining the existing state highway through Belfair as a business loop. The proposed 6-miles of new highway would provide a new option for drivers to travel around and not through Belfair. The new portion of SR 3 is a Limited Access Corridor. A Limited Access Corridor restricts the total number of intersections. The restriction benefits through-travelers by shortening travel times due to reduced slowing or stopping traffic.
What to expect
Construction has not yet started. WSDOT works to keep people moving during construction. Most of the proposed new roadway is off SR 3.
