Upgrades to Colman Dock began in July

$350 million renovation expected to be complete in 2023

Get ready for major improvements to Colman Dock, downtown Seattle's ferry terminal. 

The Washington State Department of Transportation has begun a five-year $350 million upgrade to the terminal and dock area to address seismic vulnerabilities, safety concerns, and operational inefficiencies. 

Colman Dock in Seattle is WSF’s largest ferry terminal and supports transportation across Puget Sound between downtown Seattle and communities in Kitsap County and the Olympic Peninsula. It serves commuters, tourists, commercial vehicles, walk-on passengers and bicyclists.

In 2016, more than 9 million people traveled through Colman Dock, including more than 5.5 million foot passengers.

The renovation will include a new passenger only ferry pier, a new bicycle entrance, new pedestrian bridges, and new terminal buildings. 

This will all be accomplished without compromising existing service. Do check ahead about construction activities each week before going to the terminal and expect revised ferry schedules this coming January.
