House Move Postponed

Officials have postponed the planned move of a historic house from the north end of Oakland Bay to Sequim. Originally scheduled for the early morning hours tomorrow (Saturday, September 23rd),

Tawny Davis from Nikel Brothers, the company moving the house, told MasonWebTV Powered by HCC about the delay.

“The barge company just called us off,” she explained. “We’re not sure when it’s going to be scheduled.”

The house needs to travel south on Highway 3 about a mile before it can be loaded on a barge and shipped to Sequim. The house will block both lanes of SR-3 during its trip.

Advisory from Washington State Department of Transportation:

Overnight house move on SR 3 near Shelton postponed 

A transport company has cancelled the trip of an oversized load scheduled to travel on southbound State Route 3 in Mason County. The trip had been scheduled to occur tonight.

When rescheduled, the slow-moving oversized load will travel southbound on SR 3 from milepost 8.5 to milepost 7.5, approximately between Agate Road and Mason Lake Road.
