Passengers of the Water Taxi will need to cross at Columbia Street prior to boarding the Water Taxi downtown due to waterfront construction.

Do you ride the Water Taxi? Here's a change you need to know

Starting March 14, the pedestrian crossing at Yesler Way and Alaskan Way to Pier 50 will be closed because of Waterfront Seattle construction.

Pedestrians will be routed one block north to cross at Columbia Street. Please allow extra time in your commute if this lengthens your walk to the Water Taxi terminal.
