Travelers will soon notice new speed limit signs on State Route 3 near Belfair in Mason County.
The Washington State Department of Transportation will temporarily reduce the speed limit from 50 mph to 35 mph and 25 mph between milepost 27.2 and 28.6 in advance of Mason Transit’s construction project.
The speed limit reduction is located in a roughly one-mile work zone where crews working for Mason Transit will build the SR 3/Log Yard roundabout and park and ride project.
The reduced speed limit will remain in place through project completion. The lowered speed limit is enforceable when signs are posted.
