Construction update: Final deck slab is in place!

Construction on King County Water Taxi’s future home reached another milestone last week when crews installed the final deck slab that will support our future, weather-protected Passenger Only Ferry (POF) facility.

Crews have worked since July to install the 42 deck slabs, which differ slightly in size and shape. Most measure between 3 feet and 6 feet in width, and 20 feet to 40 feet in length. Crews used a crane to set them in place.

The deck area of our facility measures approximately 10,000 square feet in size.

Now that the final panel is in place, crews will work to weld rebar and pour concrete to connect the slabs together. They are also attaching utility hangers underneath the deck.
