JOB SITE INFORMATION
The Rocky Hill Ferry operation is an important element in the Region's transportation plan. It serves local vehicular traffic between Rocky Hill and Glastonbury and plays an important role for bicyclists as well. Motorists traveling between parts of southern Glastonbury and Rocky Hill can cut nearly 8 miles (one-way) off their trip if they use the ferry. Further, the ferry is the only crossing for cyclists between Hartford and Middletown. Without the ferry, cyclists face a barrier of over 13 miles with no way to get across.
The Chester Ferry is a distance saver as well, driving from Chester to Lyme is 20.3 miles overland via the East Haddam bridge, but only 8.3 miles via the ferry. The ferry is also convenient for business and pleasure with tourists’ attractions including Gillette’s Castle and the Essex Steam Train. The Ferry will play a pivotal role in the alternate transportation plan for rehabilitation of the Chester Swing Bridge project starting in spring of 2022.
