Needs & benefits

Washington State Ferries (WSF) and its contractor Pacific Pile & Marine worked together to improve passenger loading and safety at the Clinton Ferry Terminal. The project increased pedestrian safety by adding a waiting platform, improving the sidewalks per ADA standards, and widening Ferry Dock Road to include an addtional lane for thru traffic. The extra lane will prevent drivers from blocking the road when picking up or dropping off ferry passengers. A new retaining wall was also built on Columbia Beach Drive as part of the project design.
