Sea/BI/Brem - 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.

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 starting. 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.

Muk/Clin - Kitsap temporarily replaces Suquamish on route

The M/V Kitsap is now operating on the Mukilteo/Clinton route while the M/V Suquamish undergoes its federally mandated annual inspection. The 144-vehicle Suquamish is scheduled to return to the route on Thursday, July 18 once it’s cleared for service by the U.S. Coast Guard. Until then, the 124-vehicle Kitsap will run on the route in its place.

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.
