New Quonset ferry terminal set for construction

Rhode Island Fast Ferry’s planned construction of a new 10,000-square-foot ferry terminal at 1347 Roger Williams Way in Quonset Business Park is set to commence at the end of April, pending some needed final approvals.

Donadio Jr. said the Quonset Development Corp., after conducting a technical review, recently approved his plan to build a new two-story “dual use” terminal, replacing the old office trailer, on the parcel to service both occupational and recreational passengers.


RIFF operates a fast ferry from Quonset Point to Martha’s Vineyard, conducts narrated lighthouse tours and offers offshore wind farm tours.
