Send any comments or suggestions to WSFAlert@wsdot.wa.gov.Midday schedule runs to EdmondsPeople who use the Clinton-Mukilteo ferry in the early morning and late afternoon will notice little change -- the two car ferries will operate as usual. But from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the car ferries will make five round trips from Clinton to Edmonds. The State Patrol will be available in Edmonds during closure to direct Clinton traffic to the appropriate lane. People arriving from Clinton can take an Everett Transit shuttle from the Edmonds terminal to the Mukilteo terminal during the Sunday closure when no passenger-only service is available.Special parking arrangements have been made with Boeing for ferry customers who want to utilize the passenger-only service but need a car on the Mukilteo side, or for those single-occupancy vehicle drivers that have a difficult time getting on the already-overloaded vessels during the morning commute. Everett Transit will be providing shuttle service to the secure, free parking lot every day. Customers may park in Boeing Lot W-5, located near the Boeing plant off SR 526. Take the well-marked Boeing Tour turnoff to locate the parking lot. More parking on WhidbeyMore people will be walking on the car ferries or taking the passenger-only ferry during construction on the Mukilteo ferry dock. When the car ferries go between Clinton and Edmonds, they can carry only half the cars because the trip is twice as long. That means islanders will need a place to park their cars on Whidbey Island. Besides the usual places, State Ferries has arranged for the additional locations.30 new spaces -- Department of Transportation maintenance yard next to the existing Clinton park and ride.60 new spaces -- Freeland Park and Ride, courtesy of Trinity Lutheran Church.10 new spaces -- Greenbank park and ride.40 new spaces -- Dan Porter Park, Clinton.130 spaces -- Party's Parking, Humphrey Road in Clinton, $1 per day.19 new spaces - Coupeville Park & Ride.19 new spaces -- Oak Harbor Park & Ride.7 new spaces -- Soundview Shopper Park & Ride, North Whidbey.Island Transit will maintain its normal schedule to these lots during the midday closure of the Mukilteo ferry dock.
