Project Overview

Carteret Borough bid for waterside improvements to the ferry terminal and Intermodal Transportation Building on a remediated seven-acre site along the Arthur Kill in the Borough. Following DOT design approvals, the ferry terminal construction would include pedestrian shelters, commuter parking, an in-water fixed pier, floating docks for passenger loading and unloading, connecting gangways, timber ramps, a wave screen and steel piers. Funding will come from grants from NJDOT, the US Department of Environmental Protection and Federal Transit Authority. The fixed pier will be 25 feet long by 16 feet wide, and the floating dock will be 40 feet long by 40 feet wide with gangways measuring 65 feet long by 5 feet wide.

This reconstruction called for professional engineering services such as geotechnical engineering; wave analysis; structural analysis and design; conceptual, preliminary and final design; reparation of permit applications (including individual permit); construction plans, specifications and estimates; and submission of construction contract documents, bid advertisement and construction administration. This plan includes improvements for a parking lot to accommodate between 350 and 400 vehicles; an access road; site for a future terminal building, shelters, benches and other amenities such as site lighting, walkways, benches, trash receptacles, shelters and landscaped areas.

T&M retained the services of sub-consultant Gentech Engineering Associates, PC, to coordinate and inspect the soil boring operations, obtain soil samples for testing and preparation of a subsurface soil investigation report. Based on the required configuration provided by the ferry service operator, T&M is preparing plans for a single slip ferry terminal.
