SR 300 - Belfair State Park to SR 3 - Paving

Project news

  • WSDOT's contractor has rescheduled work to begin Monday, June 7.
  • The revised starting date will mean the paving project will be completed by late June or early July. 

Needs & benefits

The pavement on this stretch of State Route 300 between Belfair and Belfair State Park is showing its age with ruts and cracks, which can lead to potholes. WSDOT maintenance crews regularly make repairs to the highway, but the surface continues to deteriorate. Up to 8,500 vehicles use this route daily.

During this project, WSDOT contractor crews will remove old asphalt and repave a little more than 3 miles in both directions between Old Belfair Highway and Belfair State Park.

  • Safety: Improving the highway surface eliminates and helps prevent future potholes. Fresh pavement removes cracks and wheel ruts where water can collect. This gives drivers an improved ride especially when there has been driving rain.
  • Economic/Preservation: Repaving preserves the highway structure and reduces the potential for costly emergency repairs.
