LaValle Secures Transportation Funding for the Shelter Island Ferry

Posted on 12 June 2013

This week it was announced that New York State Senator Ken LaValle has secured $750,000 in New York State Transportation Department Multi-modal funds for the Shelter Island South Ferry that will help the company resolve docking and navigational issues.

The program provides funds for capital improvements to rail freight and passenger facilities, port facilities, aviation facilities, local roads and bridges and fixed ferry facilities.

“The ferries and their continuous, unimpeded operation are critically important for the residents of Shelter Island as well as for visitors and the Island’s economy,” Senator LaValle said. “I am pleased that I was able to secure this much needed state funding for the ferry company, Shelter Island and East End residents and businesses.”
