Temporary traffic change begins Monday, Oct. 5 through summer 2021

SEATTLE – Riders at Washington State Ferries’ Colman Dock should prepare for a new route to access city streets for vehicles and bikes due to closure of the Marion Street exit next week.

Beginning Monday, Oct. 5, traffic will be routed to Yesler Way, which may cause delays offloading ferries during peak times. This closure will last through late summer 2021 and will allow contractor crews to build a new trestle at the Marion Street exit.

There will be no changes for walk-on passengers.
