Previous damage on this portion of SR 302 caused by erosion.

This portion of SR 302 has seen repeated damage due to erosion under the surface of the highway.


March 2017

  • Until further notice, SR 302 near Victor has been reduced to a single lane with traffic being controlled by a signal. The speed limit is also reduced to 25 mph. These temporary measures will be in effect until dry weather allows crews to re-establish two lanes of traffic.
  • Sign up for email updates about this project.
  • This work is weather-dependent and requires seven consecutive days of dry weather.
  • A new closure timeline has not been set.

Why is WSDOT replacing two culverts under State Route 302 at milepost 4.5 in Mason County?

The culverts that run under this section of SR 302 are slowly moving downslope due to erosion. WSDOT will replace the two culverts and permanently affix them in place with a new structure. A permanent fix includes installing a structure that defends against erosion and replacing two culverts.

What can drivers expect?

A temporary speed reduction is currently in place over this section of roadway. Temporary patching will continue until construction of the permanent fix begins. Once construction begins, a full closure of SR 302 at milepost 4.5 will be required for approximately one week. Traffic will follow a detour.

The End Result
The new culverts and the structure which defends against erosion will save money on frequent maintenance costs.

Project Benefits
Installing two new culverts and securing the adjacent slope will preserve the integrity of the highway and save money on frequent maintenance costs.
