Cape May-Lewes Ferry Marine Master Plan Virtual Public Meeting to be Held Later This Month


Cape May-Lewes Ferry Riders and local stakeholders can get information on the status of the Ferry Marine Master Plan through a Virtual Public Information Meeting, which will be held on Thursday February 23rd at 6 pm. Last year, previous analysis was presented in a series of public meetings. Since those meetings, the Board has selected a 75-vehicle capacity ferry as the concept to serve the needs of the system into the future. A fleet of four, 75-vehicle vessels would be able to accommodate current and future growth assumptions and meet the goals outlined in the plan. Representatives from the consultant and naval architect firm, Elliott Bay Design Group, as well as CMLF staff will be present to discuss the information. You are required to register in order to attend the meeting.
