Get to Know the Next Lummi Island Ferry Vessel at Aug. 7 Informational Booth

Lummi Island residents are invited to learn about the design and features of a new ferry vessel with Whatcom County Public Works. The county will have an informational booth at the Aug. 7 Lummi Island Saturday Market. In addition to informational displays and drawings, people will also be able to suggest a name for the new vessel and sign a letter to Federal Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg supporting the county’s grant application for construction funding. 

“In the last few years we have worked with the island community to understand what they would like in their next ferry, and we have engaged an engineering firm to draw up plans for the new boat that take into account County Council level of service requirements, crew needs, Coast Guard, and other regulatory requirements,” said Senior Ferry Master Rich Hudson. “I hope folks will come to our informational booth on Aug. 7 to learn about the work that’s been done so far and find out what they can do to help.” 

What: Informational booth about the next Lummi Island ferry vessel

When: 10am-1pm on Saturday, Aug. 7

Where: Lummi Island Saturday Market, next to the Islander Store, one block south of the ferry terminal.

For more information about this event, email Marie Duckworth, Public Works communications specialist, at MDuckwor@co.whatcom.wa.us. For more information about the new vessel, visit the project webpage.
