The Yesler Way intersection reopened on Monday and the area to the south was reestablished as a work zone for the Alaskan Way Viaduct Program, as it was prior to seawall construction. To accommodate these changing work zones, the following access changes to Colman Dock took place on Monday morning:

  • All ferry access shifted to Yesler Way for vehicles and bicyclists.
  • Pedestrian access to the ferry terminal on Colman Dock will be maintained via the Marion Street pedestrian bridge and at street-level on the south side of Marion Street. Please see this map from our partners at the SR 99 Tunnel Project for more information.
  • The multi-use path along Alaskan Way remains open. Temporary shifts and intermittent closures may be necessary to accommodate work activities.

 

Seawall season 2.5 construction started Monday, January 12

On Monday, seawall construction expanded southward to the area adjacent to Colman Dock, between Madison Street and Yesler Way. Even though we have established this new construction zone, Colman Dock and associated businesses will remain open and accessible. Other waterfront businesses will also remain open and accessible through Waterfront Park.

The seawall construction work zone has expanded south, between Madison Street and Yesler Way.
