Fauntleroy Terminal – Online Open House – Project timeline

WSF is early in the planning stage for replacement of the Fauntleroy ferry terminal. WSF is using a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study to consider potential solutions for how to replace the terminal. The PEL study, conducted in partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), helps identify transportation issues, environmental concerns, community values and economic goals early in project planning.

After the PEL process, WSF will begin the National and State Environmental Policy Act (NEPA/SEPA) environmental review process, which will include more opportunities for community engagement and input.
