High-Speed Ferry to Run Between Fall River & Block Island
September 13, 2013
Block Island Times: In an exclusive interview with The Block Island Times, Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan touted a new partnership with Interstate Navigation that will bring ferry passengers from Fall River to Newport and over to Block Island. The ferry will depart daily from the Fall River State Pier, next to Battleship Cove. The service is expected to start in 2014.
Flanagan spoke to the newspaper just moments before he was to give a press conference announcing the move on Monday afternoon [September 9].
