HIGH SPEED FERRY AND DOCKING FACILITY
TPA was selected in a competitive RFQ process to head a multi-discipline team of consultants to evaluate the design of a high speed ferry terminal and docking facility at the Bridgeport location of the proposed system. The Team’s work encompassed surveys of current inter-modal and highway ridership, demand for service, size of vessels and scope of terminal facilities, costs of maintenance and operations, income projections and the project’s economic feasibility. TPA reviewed existing physical conditions, and studied docking and maritime facilities as well as site and supporting parking facilities for the terminal.
TPA is currently preparing design documents for a new ferry facility site including a terminal building, floating docks, utilities, security fencing, and site lighting. The finished grade of the terminal and adjacent decking will be raised to elevation 13.0 to place the facility above the base flood elevation. Close proximity to the Port Jefferson Ferry, Metro-North commuter railroad, and GBTD bus station will create a multi-modal transportation hub.
