Sea/BI - Temporary speed reduction near SR 305 Agate Pass Bridge started 7/27

Effective Saturday, July 27, drivers will have to travel at slower speeds approaching the SR 305 Agate Pass Bridge. WSDOT contractor crews are replacing the existing 45 mile-per-hour speed limit signs with 35 mile-per-hour speed limit signs. The temporary speed reduction will help keep travelers and WSDOT contractor crews safe while a containment system is set up to repaint the bridge. The reduced speed limit will remain in place until the work is complete for the season.

Drivers who cross the bridge may want to give themselves a little extra time to get to the Bainbridge terminal. More information is available at www.wsdot.wa.gov/travel/construction-updates/kitsap-mason

Reminder - Exploring Partnerships for Anacortes Ferry Terminal Improvements

The Washington State Department of Transportation is partnering with the Port and City of Anacortes to explore innovative public-private partnerships to enhance the 35-acre ferry terminal site. This could include commercial opportunities such as retail stores, lodging and food options. WSDOT would like to hear from Anacortes and San Juan Islands residents, tribes and ferry passengers to ensure these opportunities meet your priorities.

Please take a moment to fill out a brief online survey to share your ideas about potential opportunities for the ferry terminal property. To take the survey, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WSDOTAnacortesSurvey. The survey will only be available for a few weeks. You can learn more about the project at http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Funding/Partners/AnacortesFerryTerminal.htm.

Sea/BI/Brem - Lane closures near Colman Dock began Monday, July 15

Customers driving through Colman Dock should give themselves extra time to enter and exit the terminal. Yesler Way is now closed near the terminal. Alaskan Way has also been reduced to one lane in each direction between Columbia Way and South Washington Street. Both closures will remain in place for several weeks to facilitate the ongoing demolition of the SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct.

Due to the nearby construction, drivers will be directed to continue traveling north or south on Alaskan Way if both holding areas on both Pier 52 and Pier 48 are full. Passengers driving aboard are encouraged to consider walking on if possible.

We appreciate your continued patience. 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.
