Washington State Route 308

On Sunday, July 27, 2014, we drove short Washington State Route 308 from one naval base to a brick wall.

RCW 47.17.567
State route No. 308

A state highway to be known as state route number 308 is established as follows:

Beginning at a junction with state route number 3, thence easterly to Keyport.

SR 308 @ SR 3
Careful not to turn down the road toward the men with guns who guarded the Bangor nuclear submarine base, we start Highway 308 facing the other direction at the interchange with SR 3.

A mile and a half later, we're at the halfway point of Highway 308, which has no more junctions. So I asked Chunlin to photograph the dense forest.

And then we reached a brick wall. But first, actually, we crossed a causeway over an arm of Liberty Bay and entered Keyport. The submarine museum is a giant industrial-looking building. We entered the town, but after just a couple blocks, Highway 308 ended here at this wall. I had an urge to "drive to the end" by bumping my car against the wall, but I thought better of it. Men with guns, you know.

The street continues on the other side of the wall. If only...
