Nighttime slowdowns starting Monday on interchange site

Construction work on the State Route 3/SR 303 interchange has been more visible than obstructive to passing drivers. Next week that’s changing as there are several overnight slowdowns planned in the $16.7 million project’s vicinity. The state Department of Transportation has announced it will be impeding traffic at the following times:

• Monday, June 19, midnight-4 a.m. — rolling slowdowns on north- and south-bound SR 3;

• Tuesday, June 20, 10 p.m.-4 a.m. — rolling slowdowns on north- and south-bound SR 3;

• Wednesday, June 21, 10 p.m.-4 a.m. — rolling slowdowns on north- and south-bound SR 3 and SR 303 (Waaga Way);

• Thursday, June 22, 10 p.m.-4 a.m. — rolling slowdowns on northbound and southbound SR 3 and on Waaga Way.

Delays of up to 15 minutes at a time are expected and flaggers will be in the area to control traffic flow.

Crews will be installing high-mast illumination poles and stringing power lines across both highways and the ramps.

For more information on the Waaga Way interchange project and an illustration of the planned changes, visit or call the WSDOT’s Port Orchard office at (360) 874-3000.
