Over 9 million people move through Colman Dock every year, and it's aging and vulnerable to earthquakes. Learn more about why we need to replace the facility.

This is a safety and preservation project to ensure that we can continue to provide safe and reliable ferry service. We are also taking this opportunity to make the facility more efficient. See what will change and view design images.

An icon of a construction cone

Major construction activities are scheduled to begin later this summer and continue through early 2023. Ferry operations at Colman Dock will be maintained throughout construction.

Nearly half the facility will be demolished and rebuilt, including the timber pier and the terminal building. Learn what to expect during construction; and how we plan to minimize impacts.

An icon of a Washington State ferry

There will be no reduction in service but Bremerton and Bainbridge Island sailing schedules will change starting in January 2018 so that only one vessel arrives and departs Colman Dock at a time. Learn more and provide feedback on the proposed WSF sailing schedule.

The King County Water Taxi and future Kitsap Transit Fast Ferry facility will temporarily move to the north side of Colman Dock in August 2017.
