Walkway Construction

pl1pl2Construction is ongoing to complete the ‘Freeland Trail’ section of the Whidbey Island public walkway in front of the Coldwell Banker Tara Properties’ Freeland office. This is part of the ‘Bridge to Boat Trail’, eventually extending from Deception Pass Bridge down to the Clinton Ferry. The workers are doing an excellent job and trying to keep maximum access to the parking lot. Not an easy task for all that they’re doing. We understand that paving will be early next week. It should be a wonderful section of the walkway.

New Ferry for Whidbey Island

You will soon see a new ferry at the Mukilteo and Clinton docks. The new Tokitae will replace the Cathlamet which is moving down to the Vashon run. Mukilteo is getting the new boat because more cars travel on that route than any other in the system – more than 2 million last year, outgoing ferry chief David Moseley said. The Tokitae holds 144 cars, 20 more than the Cathlamet, so ferry waits should be shorter.

Nichols Brothers, a Whidbey Island boat builder, had a hand in the construction of the new boat.
