Sea/Brem/BI - Alaskan Way has been reduced to one lane in each direction
Reminder: Vehicle passengers traveling through Colman Dock should plan on giving themselves more time to get to and out of the terminal in the coming weeks. WSDOT contractor crews began deconstructing the section of the old SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct in front of the terminal on February 20. This work requires reducing Alaskan Way to one lane in each direction between Marion Street and Yesler Way. Travelers should prepare for heavier than normal traffic congestion during the closure. The work is scheduled to conclude by the end of March.

Construction is not anticipated to affect walk-on passengers’ access to Colman Dock. Customers will still be able to use the Marion Street pedestrian bridge or Alaskan Way to access the terminal.

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.

Western Avenue closed near Colman Dock started Monday, March 18
Reminder: Western Avenue is closed in both directions between Columbia and Marion streets. The road will be closed until at least early April and gives crews space to build a section of the temporary Marion Street pedestrian bridge.

This temporary bridge will eventually connect all the way to the new Seattle terminal building this summer. Drivers exiting Colman Dock are encouraged to use First Avenue or subsequent streets if they typically rely on Western. For more information, visit AlaskanWayViaduct.com. Customers can also sign-up to receive email updates about the project.
