From the Washington State Department of Transportation (January 4, 2019):
Things have been pretty quiet at the site of the future Mukilteo ferry terminal since contractors finished the trestle, utility, and foundation work and vacated the site in October. But that’s soon to change.
IMCO Construction, a familiar presence onsite and the winning bidder, will return the week of Jan. 7, about eight weeks earlier than expected. IMCO worked on stormwater utilities for the project, wrapping that up in October. This next stage of work includes the passenger building, holding lanes, toll plaza, and waterfront promenade.
As construction ramps up, here’s what to expect in January and February
- Truck activity: Expect more truck activity in the area while the contractor sets up operations and brings in heavy equipment to begin the uplands work on the project.
- Pedestrian trail closures: The pedestrian trail is important to residents, and our goal is to minimize trail closures. However, the trail runs directly through an active construction site where trucks will be moving about. For safety reasons, we will need to close the trail at times and detour it at others. We will provide advance notice of closures and clearly mark the trail with information.
- Work hours: As before, we will limit work hours to weekdays 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. If there’s a reason to work outside those hours, we will seek approval from the City of Mukilteo and provide advance notice. There will be no pile-driving on Saturdays; we don’t expect work on Sundays.
- Lights: As with the earlier phase of the project, construction lights will be directed away from our terminal neighbors.
It’s good to be underway with this phase of construction. It puts us on track to open the new terminal in fall 2020. We’ll keep you posted on construction activity with monthly emails and updates on the Mukilteo project website.
Thank you for your continued patience while we work to bring the safer, greener, and more efficient facility to the Mukilteo waterfront.
