Newburgh-Beacon Ferry Landings

Newburgh-Beacon Ferry Landings
Project Overview: 
McLaren provided marine design and construction management services for ferry landings in Newburgh and Beacon, New York, for the Metropolitan Transit Authority. Operations of the original Newburgh-Beacon Ferry stopped in 1963 with the construction of the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, and then began again in October 2005 with the construction of the new ferry landings.
McLaren's Role: 
In Beacon, McLaren designed a timber platform situated on the far end of the existing deck, measuring approximately 180 square feet and comprised of new timber piles and timber framing. An aluminum gangway, 60 feet long and 6 feet wide, connects the platform to two new floating barges. These steel barges are anchored with four steel pipe piles. The Newburgh landing consists of a 30-foot by 90-foot steel barge anchored by four steel pipe piles. Another aluminum articulating gangway connects the barge to the existing timber bulkhead. McLaren also built a pedestrian shelter at the Newburgh site. Construction on this project took only a matter of days and the Newburgh-Beacon Ferry now serves as a vital transportation link on the Hudson.
