Ferry Terminals Construction and Maintenance
During the spring and summer months, the ferry terminal upgrades project went out to bid and entered the approvals phase. The bid has now been awarded and we have all the necessary approvals to get started. We anticipate construction to begin shortly after the holidays. There will be no interruptions to service during construction.
At the Bristol Terminal, a passenger waiting area will be built and new fencing and gates installed. Also, in Bristol we are having new pilings installed and some fendering placed on the dock itself.
At the Prudence Island Terminal, timbers on the pilings are being replaced and maintenance will be performed on the ramp and gallows.
The funding source for this project is through Federal Highway Administrations "Ferry Boat Program" and RI Department of Transportation. We are looking forward to having these upgrades completed at both terminals.
