These potential closures of the Hood Canal Bridge could mean additional traffic on highways in Mason County. Specifically Highway 3 in Belfair, Highway 106 from Belfair through Union to Potlatch, and U.S. Highway 101 from Jefferson County south.
Effective immediately and continuing through Sunday, Sept. 13, motorists who need to cross the State Route 104 Hood Canal Bridge are advised to proactively check the status of the bridge before they head out. The Washington State Department of Transportation will regularly update the status of the bridge, indicating whether it is open or closed to vehicular traffic, on WSDOT’s Hood Canal Bridge Web page. At present, no boat openings are scheduled.
