It took awhile to happen, but the improved passenger pickup and drop off area at the Clinton Ferry Terminal is finally open this week.
The $3-million project was meant to increase pedestrian safety. The work included the addition of a traffic lane on Ferry Dock Road, sidewalks that are ADA compliant and a waiting platform. “The additional lane will allow through traffic to bypass the pickup and drop off area for walk-on ferry passengers,” State Ferries explained.
Drivers can use the new pick up and drop off area by making a right turn onto Ferry Dock Road as they approach the ferry terminal on State Highway 525. Ferry customers with limited mobility can still use the dock near the terminal building for loading, State Ferries reported.
The project was first scheduled for the summer of 2017, but was pushed back a couple of times.
