At low tides these loading ramps create a steep slope where the hinge at the top causes an extreme angle for trucks or RVs with a low ground clearance. Waiting for a higher tide allows for this angle to lessen at the bridge seat (top). This allows for safer clearances for vehicles low to the ground and keeps them from scraping or hanging up at these locations.

Ana/SJs-Construction to Replace Anacortes Ferry Terminal Tollbooths Began May 1


After some delays due to global supply chain issues, construction to replace the aging tollbooths at the Anacortes Ferry Terminal began May 1.

Passengers are encouraged to plan ahead and give themselves extra travel time once construction starts as some tollbooths may be closed. The work to replace the tollbooths that are more than 50 years old is scheduled to be completed this fall. The project will add a dedicated ADA accessible tollbooth along with canopies to protect customers from inclement weather when completed. For more information about the project and a full list of project impacts go to: Anacortes Terminal Tollbooth Replacement Project | WSDOT (wa.gov).
