Washington State Ferry

The Washington State Department of Transportation replaced several of its pier clusters during an upgrade at a ferry terminal on Puget Sound. Rather than deal with the accumulation of barnacles and sea vegetation that historically accumulated on wooden and steel pilings, the DOT opted to use steel pilings coated with polyurea.
