There’s no avoiding it. Some aspects of construction are loud. Crushing concrete is one of them. In early March, our contractor will bring in special equipment to break up concrete pavement and crush concrete rubble at the future home of the Mukilteo ferry terminal. The rubble comes from old walls around storage tanks at the former fuel storage facility that operated on the site from 1951 to 1990.
We will recycle these materials onsite rather than truck them away, in accordance with WSDOT’s recycled materials plan. This work is expected to last a week and will happen during work hours. Crews will use water spray to keep dust down.
Passenger building walls coming soon
In spring, the contours of the passenger building will be visible at the water’s edge as, first, wall forms appear and then walls are poured at the west and east ends of the building, where the elevators will be located. We’ll provide more details as that work approaches.
Truck haul route
In April, trucks will begin hauling in fill to construct the future holding lanes. The truck route goes down SR 525, enters at the current toll plaza, and runs behind the current holding lanes and into the construction site. Trucks will leave using the same route and they’ll be spread out to avoid congestion. Trucking hours are Monday through Thursday: 7 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. and Fridays 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Flaggers will be in place during those times to direct traffic. Find a map of the truck haul route here.
General work hours are weekdays 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Thank you for your continued patience as this work progresses to replace the 62-year-old seismically vulnerable Mukilteo ferry terminal.
