Sea/Brem - Afternoon offloading delays at the Bremerton terminal
Beginning March 14, drivers on the Seattle 2:50 pm and 4:15 pm sailings to Bremerton will encounter surface street delays leaving the Bremerton terminal, due to the closure of the right lane of westbound Burwell St/SR 304 between Montgomery Ave and Callow Ave.

Additionally, the right lane of southbound Callow Avenue will be closed at Burwell Street. The two lanes turning left onto southbound Callow Avenue from westbound Burwell will be reduced to one left-turn lane. This 24-hour closure will continue for approximately two weeks. Work is weather dependent and drivers are advised to consider alternate routes.

The city’s contractor for the Highway Safety Improvements Project will be replacing the sidewalk and curb ramps at the south west corner of Callow and Burwell. The lane closure is required in order to accommodate the work and to detour pedestrians around the work site. For more information, please visit the Highway Safety Improvements Phase 2 and Puget Sound Navy Gate Sidewalk Project webpage.

Ana/SJIs - Update - Galley service for M/V Hyak
On Wednesday, Feb. 21, the M/V Hyak joined the Anacortes/San Juan Islands route as the #1 vessel. Food service will be available on the upper deck, but all other upper deck access and seating will remain closed due to Coast Guard regulations for "Super" class vessels. Passengers will be able to purchase food and non-alcoholic beverage items in the upper deck galley and return to the lower passenger deck. (Please note that Washington State law prohibits the consumption of alcohol outside of the designated galley serving/seating area; therefore, alcoholic beverages cannot be sold on these vessels while the upper passenger deck is closed for the winter sailing schedule.)

View the Anacortes Terminal Conditions page for galley hours for the vessels. Vessel numbers appear on the Anacortes/San Juan Islands Schedule next to each departure time.

Sea/BI/Brem - Vehicle Access and Queuing Changes at Colman Dock Now in Place
Due to construction activities at Colman Dock, the area in front of the terminal between Madison St. and Yesler Way is now used as vehicle lanes for tollbooth access and ferry queuing. Drivers may enter Colman Dock from northbound Alaskan Way under the viaduct or via westbound Madison St. Vanpools, motorcycles and commercial trucks may continue to enter the dock from Yesler Way. For more information, please visit the Project Website. These traffic pattern changes are in place due to major construction to replace the aging and seismically-vulnerable Seattle ferry terminal.

Sea/BI - Bainbridge Truck Traffic Must Use Marion Street Exit

Faunt/Va/SW - Reminder - Fauntleroy Tollbooth & Traffic Changes
All drivers must stop at the tollbooth to buy or redeem tickets. Drivers will receive a destination card and a receipt, and will no longer have to stop again after the tollbooth to scan tickets. Instead, they must keep their destination cards visible, and will be directed to the appropriate holding lane.

WSF implemented these changes to the Fauntleroy traffic patterns with the aim of improving efficiency at the tollbooth during peak commute time.

Customers could still experience extended wait times during peak travel periods when volume of vehicles waiting to board exceeds capacity. Please follow all instructions from WSF staff and signs. For more information about the new procedure, please visit FVS Improvement. To purchase tickets online, visit Wave2Go.

Muk/Clin - ADA Pick Up and Drop Off at Clinton Must Enter Through Tollbooth
Customers using the ADA/limited mobility pick-up and drop-off area at the Clinton terminal must enter through the tollbooth instead of the transit bus lanes. Entering through the tollbooth helps keep car traffic out of the bus lanes and ensures your safety and security on the dock. Passengers that are able to walk a short distance can save time and avoid lineups at the tollbooth by using the designated drop-off/pick-up area across from the phone booth on Ferry Dock road. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
