Marion Street Pedestrian Bridge

Project status

The Marion Street Pedestrian Bridge now open!

The Marion Street Pedestrian Bridge opening, which was delayed due to harsh weather over the previous weekend, along with some technical challenges, is now open.

Some aspects of the bridge remain in a temporary condition, expect to see some temporary railing and construction safety devices as we continue to install permanent railing, complete finishing touches and remove the temporary bridge columns.

About the project

The City of Seattle and the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) will rebuild the Marion Street Pedestrian Bridge to provide a direct connection between First Ave and Colman Dock on Marion St. It will meet the existing bridge at Western Ave, span over the completed Alaskan Way roadway, and tie into the second level of the Colman Dock Entry Building. This essential pedestrian connection to the Seattle Multimodal Terminal at Colman Dock has historically served nearly 5 million pedestrian passengers annually – many of whom use this bridge, making it one of the busiest pedestrian bridges on the west coast. The new bridge maintains the direct connection between the ferries and 1st Avenue, but will be wider and well lit, and will offer views out over Colman Dock and the entire waterfront.
