MUKILTEO - A third weekend closure of the Mukilteo Ferry Terminal April 1-3 won't be necessary, as originally planned, because major preservation work was completed ahead of schedule on Sunday.

Additional preservation work will continue for the next month during the evenings, but will not disrupt service.

"I greatly appreciate the patience and flexibility of our Whidbey Island and Mukilteo customers," said David Moseley, assistant secretary for Washington State Ferries (WSF). "The work completed was vital to ensure the continued safe operation of the terminal."

This is one of the busiest routes in the WSF system, carrying nearly 3.9 million passengers in 2010.

During the closures, crews replaced the mechanical and electrical systems that control the transfer span and apron that link the vessel and the dock.
