Sea/Brem/BI - Alaskan Way reduced to one lane in each direction starting Feb. 20
Reminder: Vehicle passengers traveling through Colman Dock should plan on giving themselves more time to get to and out of the terminal in the coming weeks. WSDOT contractor crews will begin deconstructing the section of the old SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct in front of the terminal on Wednesday, Feb. 20. The work will require reducing Alaskan Way to one lane in each direction between Marion Street and Yesler Way. Travelers should prepare for heavier than normal traffic congestion during the closure. The work is scheduled to conclude by the end March.
Construction is not anticipated to affect walk-on passengers’ access to Colman Dock. Customers will still be able to use the Marion Street pedestrian bridge or Alaskan Way to access the terminal.
We appreciate your continued patience during this important project. If you have additional questions about the road closure, or demolition of the SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct, email email@example.com or call 1-888-AWV-LINE (298-5463).

Update: Winter weather delays start of Ferry Dock Road project to Feb. 18
It will take a few more days before the Ferry Dock Road project gets underway. Due to continued inclement weather, the contractor is pushing the start date of the project back to Monday, Feb. 18. The road will remain open until then.
The contractor initially planned to move in equipment for the project on Feb. 11. However, the recent winter storm forced them to amend those plans, and the continued inclement weather made it necessary to adjust the date further. For more information about the project that will improve pick-up and drop-off access to the Clinton terminal, please visit Ferry Dock Road Project in Clinton.

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.
