Coupeville ferry terminal work planned

There will be no ferry service on the Coupeville-to-Port Townsend ferry route on Nov. 5-6, Washington State Ferries has announced.

The Coupeville Terminal will undergo work to better prepare it for an earthquake. Workers will temporarily dismantle and seismically reinforce the columns that raise and lower the car bridge, according to the press release.

The project is expected to take both days to complete.

Sailings are slated to resume at 6:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 7, but reservations are not being accepted on Monday “in the event that unplanned delays require work to extend past Sunday night,” the release said.
