Sea/BI/Brem - Marion Street closed near Colman Dock starting Tuesday, March 26
People in vehicles traveling through Colman Dock should plan on giving themselves more time to get to and out of the terminal in the coming weeks. Marion Street between Alaskan Way and Western Avenue will be closed starting tomorrow, March 26. The closure is part of the ongoing effort to demolish the Alaskan Way Viaduct. Vehicles using the Marion Street exit to leave Colman Dock will need to turn north or south along Alaskan Way to navigate around the road closure, which is scheduled to last through early April.

Walk-on passengers accessing Colman Dock also need to prepare for the upcoming closure of the Marion Street Pedestrian Bridge this weekend, March 30-31. The bridge closure is a safety precaution while construction crews remove parts of the viaduct above and around the bridge. WSDOT staff will be available from 3 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, near the information booth inside terminal with additional details about the closure of the pedestrian bridge.

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 viaduct@wsdot.wa.gov or call 1-888-AWV-LINE (298-5463). Customers can also sign-up to receive email updates about the project.

Reduced capacity on Edmonds/Kingston route through March
Drivers should continue to plan for possible delays on the route through the end of the month.

The Suquamish holds about 60 fewer vehicles than the Puyallup.

People driving aboard are encouraged to give themselves extra travel time. Thank you for your patience while we work to return the route back to full capacity.
