Mayor Walsh today announced a temporary ferry dock will be install at Lewis Mall, next to the Maverick Square T stop, this summer, with a permanent dock to come next summer.
Once installed, the temporary dock will be accessible to water taxis, with the city looking at a pilot scheduled ferry service across the harbor.
Improvements to the Lewis Mall dock will make the existing underutilized dock both ADA-accessible and usable by the ferries and water taxis that serve other destinations in Boston's inner harbor. The dock improvements will also provide new lighting and areas for passengers. The project includes modifying the existing timber pier to improve resiliency and reduce the chance of flooding during a coastal storm.
Massport and MassDOT are working with the city on the plans.
