Ready for the roof
The second floor of the Mukilteo passenger building is up, and the roof beams await the roof, which will be lowered into place this month. In this shot looking west, a ferry is coming into the old terminal a third of a mile away. The area in the foreground is where the future waterfront promenade will be.
We will again be trucking materials into the site the week of Sept. 23 using the same haul route as last time. The route runs down SR 525, behind the current holding lanes, and into the work site. Trucks will be staged along the route with flaggers in place so trucks don’t interfere with ferry loading and unloading. Trucking hours are Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Pedestrian trail to reopen in October
The popular pedestrian trail that passes by the construction site, closed in late March, is set to re-open to pedestrians in October. It runs from the Sounder station through the end of the work zone in the area that will be the new First Street when the terminal opens next year.
To build the new First Street, crews have reconfigured the roundabout in front of the Sounder commuter train station. There is still be space for vehicles to turn around there, but it’s been changed to make way for construction. This new configuration will remain in effect until the new First Street opens next year.
Thank you for your continued patience while we build your new Mukilteo ferry terminal. We’re still on schedule to open in October 2020!
