Traffic alert: 2-week lane closure ahead at Fauntleroy terminal

Heads up for Fauntleroy ferry-terminal users and people who drive/ride/walk in the area: The wrapping-up-soon Barton Pump Station Upgrade Project just north of the terminal will close the north lane at the terminal for two weeks around the clock, starting next Monday (March 2nd). It’s “to enable construction on a retaining wall,” says Annie Kolb-Nelson from King County, adding: “Flaggers will be onsite during busy commute times to guide traffic.” P.S. Full details are on the newest flyer.

    I guess that’s a real sign that they’re getting closer to finishing that project. If I’m not mistaken, it was originally scheduled to finish last summer, then last fall, so maybe by springtime?

    I’ll be excited to launch the kayak again from the cove park when they’re finished. Been several years…

    This whole project has taken way too long. Now a wall? how long will that take. I estimate six months closure and the taxpayers will get stuck with the bill.

    I’m still bummed about losing that sweet little park/beach area — nothing about this pump station that looks sweet or even inviting. And it’s taken WAY too long to complete.

Sorry, comment time is over.
