News and Notices

Ferry service could be impacted by weather - Friday, November 13

The Guemes Island Ferry is currently operating on a run-by-run basis due to weather. This means we could shut down at any time if conditions worsen. The forecast for this afternoon/evening calls for increased westerly wind and wind waves. In addition, the tide will begin to ebb at about 2:30 p.m. Opposing wind and tide conditions through 9:00 p.m. will possibly result in cancelled ferry runs. We will keep you posted.

The Ferry Dock Rehabilitation project is currently in the design phase, with permitting in progress now. Construction is scheduled for 2020-2021. This project will replace three concrete girders that Skagit County was not able to replace during the dock reconstruction in 2011. These girders are located under the NE corner of the dock, well outside of the area where vehicular traffic drives. These three girders are the main factor in the lower sufficiency rating given to the Anacortes dock.

Once all these projects are complete, the Washington State Department of Transportation will reevaluate the sufficiency rating of the docks during its next bridge inspection.
