Watch pile being installed at Water Taxi’s future facility (Video)

Pile installation officially began last week at the site of King County Water Taxi’s future Passenger Only Ferry (POF) facility on the Seattle waterfront.

This video clip shows installation of a “template” pile. Template piles are installed prior to the actual production piles that will serve as support columns for the new dock. The template piles help guide where the production piles should go. Once the production pile is in place, the template pile is removed and reused to guide the next production pile.

Neat stuff, huh?

The work on the Seattle Multimodal Terminal at Colman Dock Project marks the first phase of WSDOT’s five-year construction project.
