Mukilteo Ferry Terminal
This contract includes construction of a new terminal building, holding lanes, toll plaza, and waterfront promenade at the Mukilteo Ferry Terminal for Washington State Department of Transportation. The project is replacing the existing 61-year-old seismically vulnerable terminal.
The Mukilteo/Clinton ferry route connects Whidbey Island to the Seattle-Everett metropolitan area, the system’s busiest route for vehicle traffic and the second highest in annual ridership, with over four million total riders annually. The new terminal’s location near the Sounder commuter rail station will improve transit connections and open the waterfront to pedestrians.
The current layout makes loading passengers difficult and contributes to added congestion. The new building will feature separate loading for pedestrians and bicyclists, which increases safety. The current facility will remain in operation until the new one is ready.
