Davey, state and city officials to announce the start of pilot ferry service from Lynn to Boston. This new ferry service will open up a greater range of economic and play opportunities for resi- dents of the North Shore and Boston. I am proud to announce that ferry service is available from Lynn to Boston, providing greater options for commuters from the North Shore," said Governor Patrick. "We continue to invest in alternative forms of transportation, because we believe it wilL help to spur economic growth and improve access to opportunity across the state." The two-year pilot ferry service from Lynn to Boston will depart from the newly-con- structed Blossom Street Pier in Lynn and will dock at Long Wharf in Boston with three weekday departures to and from Boston every day. The Economic Development & Industrial Corporation of Lynn (EDIC) signed a contract with Boston Harbor Cruises to operate the two-year pilot program, which began on Monday, May 19, 2014 and will run through Friday, September 12, 2014. Ferry service will allow up to 250 riders per trip to enjoy a 35 minute ferry ride to get to and from their destination. Parking at the Blossom Street Extension lot in Lynn will be free. Half price fares are available for seniors and children. Zone II Commuter Raft passes will be also accepted. "By providing alternative transportation service from Lynn to Boston, MassDOT con- tinues to encourage economic growth in and around the region," said Secretary Davey. "MassDOT is committed to enhancing our transportation system in a way that strength- ens our economy and quality of life." The ferry project has received 87.65 mil- lion, with $5 million coming from the state Seaport Advisory Council, $2 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation and $650,000 from EDIC. "Thanks to the hard work of the Lynn del- egation, local officials, the Patrick Admin- istration and Seaport Advisory Council, the Lynn commuter ferry is now a reality," said Senator Tom McGee. "As we've seen hap- pen in communities like Hingham, the ferry will not only create a group of passionate commuters, but can spur significant eco- nomic development consisting of new res- taurants, residential, commercial, and mixed-use units. This is another big step forward in taking advantage of one of our greatest natural resources, our waterfront. (Photo provided by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation) I believe the potential is unlimited with fu- ture opportunities to have seven-days-per week, year-round service and additional access to the Boston Harbor islands." "We believe the ferry will be a catalyst for future waterfront redevelopment," said Lynn Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy. "We are grateful for the investment made by state and federal agencies, as well as EDIC/Lynn. This has been a lengthy process, but the result will be well worth the wait." In addition to ferry service, the Patrick Administration's investments in the region include the $11.8 million Fox Hill Bridge Construction Project on Route 107 over the Saugus River and the General Edwards Bridge rehabilitation project in Lynn and Revere, along Route 1A over the Saugus River. General Edwards Bridge project is expected to be completed in July 2014. The 810.3 million investment includes the re- pair and replacement of electrical and me- chanical operating machinery of the draw- bridge, rehabilitation and architectural re- pairs to the operator's rooms and tower and granite and steel repairs. In June of 2014, the $4.6 million reconstruction project for Route 129 in Lynn will begin. Work will in- clude roadway and' sidewalk reconstructiorl along Route 129 fr0I Boston Street to Lynnfield Street in Lynn, along with the installation of upgraded traffic signals along the corridor.
