Mukilteo Multimodal Ferry Terminal Project (Mukilteo, WA)

Washington State Ferries (WSF) is relocating the existing Mukilteo Ferry Terminal approximately one half mile east of its current location.  The project will improve ferry operations, improve pedestrian and vehicle safety, provide multimodal connectivity, and allow WSF to accommodate a significant increase in future travel demands.

Along with relocating the terminal, the footprint of the new terminal will expand from less than 2 acres to approximately 10 acres, requiring significant roadway components, three building structures, and overwater/in-water marine structures, all built upon an abandoned US Navy fuel tank farm facility site.

This presentation will provide a project overview and describe key design elements.  It will also include a discussion of Concrete Filled Steel Tubes (CFST) with fixed pile heads, which were used to minimize the lateral spreading induced displacements on the marine structures.
