NIGHTTIME WORK ALERT: Washington State Ferries confirms Fauntleroy dock project will start Monday

That’s the notice Washington State Ferries is circulating this afternoon to homes and businesses near the Fauntleroy ferry terminal (you can also see it here). It’s a confirmation that work to repave the dock and approach will start Monday night, as was tentatively scheduled when we published this report a week ago. The work will be done Monday-Thursday nights for the next month and a half or so, 7 pm-4 am, and WSF warns that it’ll be noisy. As promised, they’ll have a hotline during the project, answered around the clock, 206-402-8070. This round of repaving is expected to last until an even-bigger project, dock replacement, in about seven years.

    Vashon schools are out for their Spring Break next week as well.  This is a perfect time; not to have all our commuter students navigating the construction.  Hope the second week of construction ends early…I can wish, right?

    Does this contractor/WSF have a noise variance for the work?  If so what are the conditions and who will hold them to those conditions?

    They are expecting noise complaints, but where is the noise pollution variance from the city for the work?  Is the contractor going to be held to using best practices for operating in the quietest mode?  Or will they carelessly set up compressors at property lines and use the noisiest oldest pavement removers in existence? 

    If you’ve been notified and believe this work may bother you, you should read the code.  WSF has to follow the rules just as any one else.
