Per DJC, Washington State Ferries will hold three open houses in April to share its $326 million plan for Colman Dock terminal upgrades.
Open houses are set for April 19 , 20 and 26 and will take place at multiple locations, including aboard ferries during regular runs between Seattle and Bainbridge Island as well as Bremerton.
The $326M WSF project is in conjunction with the Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration and focuses on replacing old areas of the ferry terminal, reconfiguring the layout and addressing earthquake and other safety concerns. The existing timber trestle will be replaced with a new concrete and steel trestle, the main terminal building will be replaced, a new entry building, elevated plaza and view platform will be constructed and much more.
Some of the benefits of the upgrades include removing 7,400 tons of creosote-treated timber piles from Elliott Bay, providing stormwater treatment, and providing opportunities for management of contaminated sediments.
Colman Dock is the largest ferry terminal in the state, serving over nine million ferry customers and 500,000 King County Water Taxi riders in 2015.
