New Ferry Terminal for Anacortes

The Seattle Times reported today that U.S. Sen. Patty Murray has obtained¬†$7.6 million more in federal money for Washington state’s ferry system.¬† One of the projects approved was a new ferry terminal in Anacortes!

This is great news!  Anacortes businesses benefit tremendoualy from ferry riders, and many Anacortes homes buyers first learn about Anacortes when they come to our city to take a ferry to the San Juan Islands.  

Originally Washington state only received $750,000 to upgrade the Guemes Island ferry dock out of the 11 grants were applied (totally approximately $56 million).  The Guemes Island ferry is actually operated by Skagit County.

We will post more details as they become available.
