Managing Travelers

Marion Street paving began this week and it’s been a tightrope act balancing foot, bike, car, freight AND ferry traffic.  Coordination with the Washington State Ferries started months ago and continues as we monitor the work’s status.

To ease congestion construction is being phased to keep two lanes of Marion open during the morning and afternoon commute.  So far, so good, with some back-ups as ferry pedestrian traffic offloads.  Uniformed police officers at First and Second avenues helped out as construction began, with flaggers also on site to better coordinate pedestrians and vehicles.  We appreciate everyone’s continued patience as we work on this important roadway.
