The Port of Seattle is proposing to develop a new cruise terminal at Terminal 46 as part of a flexible marine transportation facility, which will continue to support cargo and other marine operations.

Analysis of the cruise market and cruise ship deployment supports the need of a fourth berth to meet the demand for Port of Seattle cruise services, which can no longer be met by the three berths at the Port’s two existing terminals, the port authority said.

The port authority explained that will take place, which is is an early and open process for determining the issues that will be addressed in the environmental review document, for soliciting input regarding the proposed action and reasonable alternatives, and for identifying concerns regarding its potential environmental effects.

Comments received during Scoping will be reviewed and taken into consideration during the preparation of the SEPA analysis. All comments must be received no later than 13th November, 2019.
