About the Project
This project involves the design and construction of a new ferry boat for the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry system. A new 70-vehicle capacity, double-ended, steel hull ferry boat will replace the oldest vessel, the Virginia.
The contract for Phase 1, design of the ferry, was given to Alion Science and Technology in September of 2014.
Construction of the ferry is anticipated to be advertised in fall 2016, with completion estimated by fall 2018.
This project is included in the Six-Year Improvement Plan for 2013-2018, with $2.5 million currently allocated for design, and funding for the remaining $25 million for construction available in FY2017-2018.
