Build Grant

In May 2020, the Whatcom County Public Works Department submitted a BUILD Grant Application to the US Department of Transportation to modernize the Lummi Island Ferry System. 

View the submitted grant application (PDF).

This project would: 

  • Replace the 58 year old ferry that currently provides service to and from Lummi Island. 
  • Adjust the terminal structures to accommodate the new vessel, as well as operational and upland modifications to preserve functionality of the ferry system.
