Lummi Island to get a New Ferry

The Washington state’s County Road Administration Board will pay Whatcom County more than $8.1 million in grant money for a new Lummi Island ferry. The money will come in installments of more than $407,000 annually for 20 years.

A lot of Lummi Island residents came to Tuesday night’s council meeting to voice their opinion for a new ferry to replace the aging 45- year-old Whatcom Chief, which is not in compliance with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and is showing signs of a deteriorating hull.
