New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. has announced that a state project to improve the South Ferry Dock on Route 114 in North Haven has entered its design phase, and is slated to begin construction in Fall 2021.

According to a press release issued by Mr. Thiele late last week, the project was initiated by the New York State Department of Transportation to improve the approach of the state roadway to the South Ferry dock.

The project will include the installation of additional drainage, raising of NYS Route 114 approach by one foot, and the reconstruction of the bulkhead and adjacent parking areas to meet the new roadway elevation.

“I wish to thank the New York State DOT for recognizing the importance of this project and moving forward to improve the section of NYS Route 114 to the South Ferry dock,” said Mr. Thiele. “This important stretch of roadway serves not just local traffic but is an interstate link from New England to the South Fork for the many travelers that utilize the Cross-Sound Ferry between New London.”
