SEATTLE (AP) -- Washington's newest ferry, the Kennewick, will be christened in a ceremony Friday afternoon in Seattle at the Vigor Shipyards, formerly Todd Pacific Shipyards.

The Transportation Department says House Transportation Chairwoman Judy Clibborn will break a bottle against a bulwark on the vehicle deck.

The Kennewick is the third new 64-car ferry. It follows the Chetzemoka and Salish.

From Seattle the Kennewick will be moved to Everett for outfitting. It should be delivered by the end of the year.
