Mason Bypass Nears Completion

The idea of a limited access bypass was first introduced to Mason County citizens in September 1999. The project was one of the last accomplishments under the tenure of the late State Rep. Pete Worthington and stirred opposition among landowners affected by the proposal. Nearly 12 years later, the footprint of the bypass is visible and construction is expected to be complete in late summer or early fall 2012, a project 13 years in the making.
