When we last checked in on construction, crews were working to cap the 29 piles that will support our new passenger-only ferry facility on the south end of Colman Dock.
Last week, we hit a milestone when workers poured the last three pile caps, filling a portable hopper with concrete from a truck and then using a crane to position the hopper over the form. The caps were then cured under a plastic covering.
The next major step is installing deck slabs, which are being fabricated now and should begin arriving in about two months.
Crews are also building columns that will support the pedestrian bridge between our new facility and the Washington State Ferries terminal. They’re nearly finished tying the rebar for one of the two columns, and expect to start pouring concrete within the next two weeks.
