State Route 302 is a highway that connects Allyn, Washington (near Belfair) to Purdy. It begins at State Route 3 and goes by Coulter Creek State Fish Hatchery and Minter Creek State Fish Hatchery and Key Center. It eventually ends in Purdy at the junction with State Route 16. This highway is used by those wanting to go from Shelton over the Tacoma Narrows Bridge to Tacoma (because Puget Sound is in the way, one's only other option is taking U.S. Route 101 to Interstate 5.)

Spur route

State Route 302 Spur
Location Purdy, Washington

State Route 302 Spur is a spur route of State Route 302 in the town of Purdy, Washington. It connects SR 302 with State Route 16 north of the town and south of the town by two separate interchanges.

SR 302 Spur comprises the half of Purdy Drive north of the Elgin-Clifton Highway (mainline SR 302). At its northern terminus, it ends at a half-interchange with the State Route 16 freeway.

SR 302 Spur is the legislative designation of this road. However, prior to construction of the freeway bypass around Purdy, Purdy Drive used to be a part of SR 16. As such, it could also be considered a spur of SR 16, although not officially so.

Mileposts on SR 302 Spur continue north from mainline SR 302.

Prior to the completion of the SR 16 bypass around Purdy, Purdy Drive (including SR 302 Spur) was a part of SR 16. When the SR 16 designation was moved to the bypass, the southern half of Purdy Drive became an extension of SR 302, and the northern half became SR 302 Spur.

Prior to the 1964 state highway renumbering, Purdy Drive was part of the Port Orchard-Tacoma branch of Primary State Highway 14.
