FERRY ALERT UPDATE: Fauntleroy dock open again, after repairs

(WSF dock cam – refresh page for newest view)

12:16 PM: As if regional transportation could not get more snarled – the Fauntleroy ferry dock is out of service until further notice “due to (a) mechanical issue with (the) transfer span connecting boat to land,” per Washington State Ferries, which adds:

Terminal maintenance crews are assessing the situation, and initial estimated time of repair is a minimum of two hours. Updates will be provided as more information becomes available. Service between Southworth and Vashon will continue. For travel to and from Vashon, the Point Defiance/Tahlequah and Southworth/Vashon routes are advised as alternatives at this time.

We’re headed down the hill to the dock for a closer look.

12:42 PM: Just confirmed at the dock what WSF has announced – the repairs are done and the dock is open again.

    So except by heading south on 35th Ave SW,  West Seattle is almost an island ;))

    In the olden days those ramps had a hand crank back up if the electrical motors had a problem they could still be used. With no cars on the dock there would seem to be many workers that could trade off so no worries with anyone being over worked

    get out the hand crank and get on it!!
