SR 525 - Mukilteo Multimodal Terminal: What to expect during construction

The new Mukilteo Ferry Terminal is Open

See more construction photos and maps and see the page "Getting to the Mukilteo ferry" for information and maps showing how to access the new terminal.  

Extended work hours
Marine crews need to work extended hours to have the overhead passenger walkway ready to open in March. The City of Mukilteo has granted WSF/Manson Construction permission to work beyond the regular approved hours: 

  • Until March 1: Monday - Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Between Feb. 22 and March 16: 10 working days when work will take place between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m.

This standup counter offers a place to work and charge your phone and laptop while waiting for the ferry. It looks out toward Whidbey Island. The counter's wood was salvaged from the old U.S. Air Force fueling pier that used to be in the water there. After being stored for years, it was refinished and earned a permanent place inside the passenger building.

Passengers can stretch their legs and stay warm and dry while waiting to walk onto the ferry.

Interpretive boards inside the passenger builidng and along the waterfront promenade tell the story of the Coast Salish tribes who lived on the Mukilteo shores before European settlers arrived. This one describes why the new passenger building was built to resemble a Coast Salish longhouse.

This overhead passenger walkway is scheduled to open in March. Until then, walk-on passengers load via the car deck.

This transit center, mere steps outside the passenger building's gates, is where buses drop off and pick up. Two ADA parking spots inside the parking lot are set aside for drivers to stop briefly to pick up or drop off passengers.
