WSF retrofitted the existing bridge seat at the Orcas Island ferry terminal to bring it up to current seismic standards. A bridge seat is the platform that holds the moveable bridge, also known as a transfer span, which vehicles and pedestrians use to get on and off of the ferry.
Retrofitting the bridge seat to bring it up to seismic standards will help prevent injury to ferry travelers and workers, and damage to infrastructure, during an earthquake.
