Port Townsend/Coupeville Down to One-Boat Service Starting Sunday, June 23
The Port Townsend/Coupeville route will be reduced to one-boat for at least a week due to unexpected vessel maintenance for two boats in the fleet starting on Sunday, June 23.

Customers are strongly encouraged to make a reservation if they plan on sailing during this week. Space for standby vehicles will be available, however; wait times could be significant. Travelers can also use Edmonds/Kingston as an alternate route.

Existing reservation holders whose original sailing has been cancelled can change their reservation to a different sailing. Passengers with existing reservations also have the option to use their existing reservation to sail on the next departure after their original sailing.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Maintenance crews will be working as quickly as possible to make the necessary vessel repairs and return the route to full capacity.

Reminder - Series of Alaskan Way Lane Closures Near Colman Dock
People driving to and from Colman Dock during the next several weeks will need to give themselves extra time to get to and from the terminal. Alaskan Way South has been reduced to one lane in each direction between South Jackson and Dearborn streets which started at 4 a.m. on Friday, June 14 until the end of viaduct demolition work this summer. The lane reduction will extend north as work progresses. The narrower roadway gives contractor crews demolishing the Alaskan Way Viaduct the necessary room to tear down this section of the viaduct.

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.
