North Mason Chamber
RIBBON CUTTING: Hwy 3 Project Completion -- THURSDAY!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Updated Press Release (#2)
August 11, 2017
(Belfair, Wash.) The North Mason Chamber of Commerce invites the public to attend a Ribbon Cutting Event in celebration of the completion of the SR 3 road widening project in Belfair. Together with representatives from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), the Chamber will mark this milestone on Thursday, August 17, at 10am in the Kitsap Bank, Belfair, parking lot. The event will feature remarks by WA State Senator Tim Sheldon, Mason County Commissioner Randy Neatherlin, U.S. Representative Derek Kilmer, and John Wynands, Olympic Region Administrator, WSDOT.
Ceccanti, Inc. began construction on the project in July of 2015, with a projected completion date of Fall, 2017. With the objective of relieving congestion and improving safety for the traveling public and pedestrians, key new features now include a full length, two-way left-turn lane, wider shoulders, and new sidewalks.
“We are already receiving accolades from both our local citizens and tourists,” said Stephanie Rowland, President & CEO of the North Mason Chamber of Commerce. “While the project has caused an expected disruption over the past couple of years, the people we are hearing from are extremely complimentary of WSDOT, Cecannti, Inc., and all those involved in keeping any inconvenience to a minimum, especially with a project of this magnitude.”
“Our Chamber is appreciative and eager to see how the vast improvement affects the future of our business community,” she added. Project benefits include everything from reduced congestion and improved bicycle and pedestrian safety, to improvements in lighting at intersections and new stormwater facilities to treat highway run-off.
