First we drove piles into the bottom of Puget Sound. Now, we’re preparing to cap them.
Crews are working to connect the piles to the future weather-protected structure of our new passenger-only ferry facility. They do that by forming “pile plugs” — rebar cages filled with concrete — that will secure and connect the piles to the trestle and passenger deck of the facility (see photo).
This process should be finished in a couple of months, and crews will start laying the decking.
Be sure to check back later for more construction updates.
