Legislators plan town hall to discuss Route 3 bypass

State lawmakers from the 35th District will have a town hall meeting at 6 p.m. Nov. 9 at The Hub, 111 Northeast Old Belfair Highway in Belfair to discuss the Belfair bypass project.

Sen. Drew MacEwen, R-Shelton, Reps. Dan Griffey and Travis Couture, both R-Allyn, and state Department of Transportation officials will discuss the project route and timeline and answer questions.

The Highway 3 Freight Corridor project will skirt Belfair, creating an alternative route for traffic.

"We know how vital this project is to those living and working in the Belfair and North Mason County region and want to provide them an opportunity to hear exactly what they can expect and get their questions answered," MacEwen said in a news release. "I hope this provides a convenient opportunity to update the community."

"We know residents have waited a long time for this alternative route around Belfair and need to know what to expect so they can plan accordingly," Griffey said in the release. "This town hall event provides that opportunity and a chance for them to share their thoughts and concerns about the project."
