The Washington State Department of Transportation’s Ferries Division (WSF) is planning to increase its ferry fleet size by building at least two 64-car ferries.

To replace its aging fleet, the WSF is planning to build four new ferries in the next five years, the department said.

In December 2008, Todd Pacific Shipyards received a $65.5m contract from WSF to build one 64-car ferry, scheduled to be delivered in 2010.

The division will pursue a contract for two more ferries with an option to purchase another.
