Hampton Roads Public Info
This project involves the design and construction of a new ferry boat for the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry system. The ferry boat will have a minimum 70 vehicle capacity. This project entails the design and construction of a new 70-passenger vehicle, double ended, steel hull ferryboat that will replace the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry system’s oldest ferryboat, The Virginia. The Request for Proposal for Professional Services is currently advertised and will close in February 2013. The intent of the RFP is to secure the professional services of a Naval Architect/Marine Engineering firm to accomplish the design and construction management. Efforts will include developing design plans, specifications, bid documents, construction cost estimates, project schedules, for the ferry boat, including the design of all components and auxiliaries that meet all requirements of federal, state and local agencies that have jurisdiction over and input into the design.
Status: The ferry construction could begin as early as 2013.
