WSDOT: Three Mukilteo Terminal Closings in Spring

Friday, January 28, 2011

The Mukilteo ferry terminal will temporarily close for three extended weekends this spring for extensive preservation work. Riders of the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry route should begin making alternate travel plans now.

The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will close the Mukilteo Terminal Friday through Sunday on March 18-20, March 25-27 and April 1-3.

During the closures crews will work on the transfer span and apron that link the vessel and the dock, replacing mechanical and electrical systems that operate these movable components.

“This work is vitally important to the safety of the Mukilteo terminal,” said David Moseley, assistant secretary for WSF. “We also realize it’s critical that we get this work done with as little disruption as possible to our riders who need to get to work, to school or other important activities.”

While the Mukilteo/Clinton ferry route will be out of service, WSDOT will provide alternate service between Edmonds and Clinton.

The Edmonds/Clinton ferry schedule will have 17 sailings on Friday and 16 on Saturday and Sunday, compared to 37 and 35 respectively on the normal Mukilteo/Clinton route and schedule. The crossing time between Edmonds and Clinton is approximately 50 minutes. The schedule is available at: www.wsdot.wa.gov/projects/ferries/mukilteoterminal/preservation/MukilteoTerminalClosure.htm

WSDOT is working with local community groups to minimize disruptions where possible.  Customers can contact sharris@wsdot.wa.gov to set up temporary carpools so they will receive preferential loading.
