Residents of Staten Island will now have direct transportation connections to Midtown West! The latest installment in the Citywide Ferry project, St. George Landing, opens adjacent to the main Staten Island Ferry, giving residents easy, fast access with connections near the Staten Island Railway. McLaren’s marine engineering team designed the new barge, pier, and upland electrical connections for the resilient project developed to withstand extreme environmental events and facilitate quick responses due to its inherent flexibility.
The team has been providing engineering consulting services for the development, investigation, planning, design, coordination, permitting, procurement, and construction administration for over a dozen new NYC ferry landings and the restoration of 4 others.
This major advancement to the City’s infrastructure has provided a much-needed upgrade to New York’s mass transit needs and increased overall connectivity in isolated neighborhoods, offering New Yorkers direct connections to many of the City’s open spaces. The opportunity for residents to better connect to jobs and economic opportunities throughout the city can bring a positive economic impact to those areas.
The NYC Ferry system first launched in 2017, and today, with the opening of the St. George route, it finally encompasses connections across all five boroughs. Learn more about this fast ferry launch in SIlive.com.
