Whatcom County’s Public Works, Health, and Safety Committee will hear a presentation regarding Gooseberry Point Ferry Terminal Queuing Alternatives Assessment Analysis (AB2012-189) on Tuesday, June 5, at 1:30pm in the Council Chambers (311 Grand Avenue, Bellingham).
From the Agenda Bill linked above:
In the Uplands Lease Agreement for Lummi Island Ferry Use at Gooseberry Point, Whatcom County committed to implementation of traffic queuing measures at Gooseberry Point in order to reduce the backup of vehicles waiting to board the ferry along Haxton Way/Lummi View Drive. Under the terms of the lease agreement, these measures are to be implemented by October 1, 2012.
On February 28, 2012, the Whatcom County Council authorized the County Executive to enter into a contract in the amount of $22,460.00 with Transpo Group to conduct an analysis of queuing alternatives. Transpo staff will be at the June 5, 2012, Public Works and Safety Committee meeting to provide an overview of the queuing study, including recommendations and cost estimates for construction of the queuing facilities.
Committee members include County Councilmembers Barbara Brenner, Pete Kremen, and Ken Mann. No action is being requested at this time.
