Mukilteo ferry commuters need to make alternate plans for traveling to and from Whidbey Island on three weekends (Friday through Sunday) this spring. The dates are March 18-20, March 25-27 and April 1-3. The Mukilteo terminal is closing for a $2.6 million overhaul of the dock. Commuters will have to either drive around or take special sailings between Edmonds and Clinton.
Ferry officials say the Edmonds-Clinton run will take about 50 minutes, and they advise arriving earlier than usual at the terminals, especially on Fridays. At the Edmonds terminal, Clinton-bound vehicles will go through the right lane when approaching the tollbooth at Edmonds. Mukilteo-Clinton tickets will be valid at the Edmonds tollbooth.
