CLINTON – Starting Monday afternoon, Sept. 30, Washington State Ferries customers at the Clinton Ferry Terminal will begin using an improved passenger pickup and drop-off area.

The passenger and ADA improvements increase pedestrian safety by adding an additional lane on Ferry Dock Road, sidewalks that meet ADA standards, and a waiting platform. The additional lane will allow through traffic to bypass the pickup and drop-off area for walk-on ferry passengers.

Drivers will use the new pickup and drop-off area by making a right turn onto Ferry Dock Road as they approach the ferry terminal on State Route 525. Ferry customers with limited mobility can still use the dock near the terminal building for loading.

The $3 million project was funded through the 2015 Connecting Washington funding package.

Washington State Ferries, a division of the Washington State Department of Transportation, is the largest ferry system in the U.S. and safely and efficiently carries nearly 25 million people a year through some of the most majestic scenery in the world.
