Carteret Mass Transit - Ferry Terminal Project
Mayor Reiman and the Carteret Port Authority Commission have selected T&M Associates, of Middletown N.J., as the design engineer to conduct the NEPA environmental studies for the town’s pending ferry terminal project.
The ferry terminal, which will lie to the north of the borough’s Waterfront Park along the Arthur Kill, promises to reestablish the Borough’s commuter potential by providing inter-modal transportation to Manhattan via a short 25 minute water route.
Ultimately the project will allow for marine facilities for docking and loading, a 350 car parking lot and drop off area, a terminal building for ticket purchases, as well as a coffee shop. The terminal will also represent the hub of one of the most formidable changes in the town’s history; its ferry service will eventually make way for the town’s first waterfront transit village, a mixed-use community comprised of luxury condominiums and boardwalk shops, and with immediate commuter access to downtown Manhattan.
In 2006 Carteret was awarded a $1.68 million federal earmark for the construction of a ferry terminal through the Federal TEA-21 act. T&M Associates has entered its fourth decade of providing comprehensive professional services to the public and private sectors. Major service areas include Traffic and Transportation; State, County and Local Government projects; Water Supply and Sewage Treatment; Recreation; Building Design Services; and Real Estate Development.
