Fauntleroy Terminal – Online Open House


Washington State Ferries (WSF) needs to replace the aging Fauntleroy ferry terminal to maintain safe and reliable ferry service for people who travel between West Seattle, Vashon Island, the Kitsap Peninsula and beyond. The terminal faces several challenges. Parts of the terminal are aging, seismically vulnerable and overdue for replacement. Rising sea levels could damage the structure from debris during high tides in the future.

Using community input, WSF developed a project purpose and need statement (PDF 379KB) outlining why this project is needed; possible solutions, known as alternatives, for replacing the terminal; and a process to evaluate those alternatives.
