Mukilteo Multimodal Terminal

Washington State Ferries

Mukilteo, WA

The Mukilteo Multimodal Terminal relocates the existing ferry terminal and includes a new ferry terminal building, maintenance building, toll booths, fishing pier, transit center for buses, and a public waterfront promenade. The new location has historical significance, sited on an old US Navy fuel tank site and near the site of the Point Elliott Treaty signing. Additional multimodal connections are provided to Sound Transit’s heavy rail commuter station and dedicated bicycle lanes throughout. The design was reviewed by and coordinated with local Coast Salish Tribes and the City of Mukilteo. This includes ethnobotanic plant material and enhanced promenade features. The public promenade emphasizes the marine environment with waves of exposed aggregate and hand-seeded patterns of colored aggregates. Curved seat walls, transparent cable railing, custom cedar log benches, lighted bollards, and pockets of planting create a unique pedestrian environment. Plant identification signs provide interpretive information on ethnobotanic plants in indigenous Lushootseed language. Bioretention cells and pervious pavement are included to treat all stormwater on site.
