Ferry Terminal Maintenance Repair Project

Update 06.24.2020

Ferry Terminal Maintenance & Repair Project is anticipated to start Monday, June 29

The Ferry Terminal Maintenance and Repair Project is now anticipated to start June 29. We are currently waiting for our Engineers’ final approval of the Contractor’s Work Plan.

Construction is scheduled to take place entirely outside of normal operating hours; therefore, regular ferry service should not be interrupted. The ferry will continue to operate on the normal non-peak sailing schedule.

However, after-hours emergency response between the docks with the car ferry will not be possible during most of the construction phase. Guemes Fire has issued a notice to island residents, available at www.linetime.org, regarding after-hours medical response during construction.

For project related questions contact the Project Manager, David Walde, at 360-416-1437, or by email at davidw@co.skagit.wa.us.

Previous project communication sent 6/17/2020

The Ferry Terminal Maintenance & Repair Project will start June 24

The Ferry Terminal Maintenance and Repair project will begin June 24 and is anticipated to be complete by early August. Construction is scheduled to take place entirely outside of normal operating hours; therefore, regular ferry service should not be interrupted. However, after-hours emergency response between the docks with the car ferry will not be possible during most of the construction phase.

This project will address a number of high priority repair items on both docks, including the repair of the apron gusset plates, and replacement of the counterweight cables and sheaves, apron hinge pins, and headframe handrails, among other items.

Work on the Anacortes dock will take place June 24 through July 9. Work on the Guemes Island dock will take place July 10 through July 30.

For project related questions contact the Project Manager, David Walde, at 360-416-1437, or by email at davidw@co.skagit.wa.us.
