New: Ferry lane holding improvements
Temporary no turning right onto Dayton Street
Last updated 6/8/2020 at 2:07pm
Drivers near the Edmonds ferry terminal will notice northbound changes at Dayton Street and State Route 104.
The Washington State Department of Transportation recently converted a temporary ferry holding lane (the Port Townsend lane) into a second permanent holding lane.
The new designation is marked with new striping, new signage and a new raised median. Drivers in the northbound general-purpose lanes will not be able to turn right onto Dayton Street. This marks the end of Phase 1 changes.
In Phase 2, scheduled to be completed mid-summer, ferry signal timing for the two lanes will be fixed and drivers will be able to turn right again onto Dayton Street.
The main goal of this project is to help reduce traffic backups on SR 104 which often extend past Pine Street during summer months and peak hours.
