Changes to Access at Seattle Ferry Terminal

With new construction projects along the Seattle waterfront, there are some upcoming changes to vehicle, bike and pedestrian access.

According to the Washington State Department of Transportation, all vehicles will enter the terminal via Yesler Way. Changes will go into affect on January 12th and are expected to be in place until May.

According to an article in the Seattle Times, some of the other changes include:

  • “Drivers will turn left or right into the WSF terminal from Alaskan Way at Yesler Way.
  • For southbound traffic, one lane of Alaskan Way in front of the ferry terminal will be dedicated to ferry access.
  • A left-turn lane will accommodate northbound traffic at Yesler Way.
  • Vehicles will exit the ferry dock onto Yesler Way or Marion Street
  • Pedestrian access through the Seawall project construction zone will be maintained to the WSF terminal in two ways: the current pedestrian bridge at Marion Street, and at street level immediately west of the Alaskan Way Viaduct. Street level access will be maintained at all times, although it will shift at various points during construction.
  • Bicyclists will enter and exit the ferry terminal on the north side of Yesler Way via the shared-use path.
  • King County Water Taxi riders will enter and exit via Yesler Way.
  • Passenger pickup and drop-off (including access for people with disabilities) will be shifted to the west side of the roadway between Marion and Columbia streets.
  • Taxi waiting areas are also available at the current location on the east side of Alaskan Way between Marion and Columbia streets. A new taxi waiting area will be added on Marion Street between Alaskan Way and Western Avenue.”
