The Fishers Island Ferry District have been talking about the dredging of the Silver Eel channel and the anticipated Ferry Park since early 2019.

In 2019 the Ferry put the Dredge project out to bid. The bid results far exceeded what was budgeted and were subsequently rejected. Since then, with the help of our County Legislator Al Krupski, Suffolk County has added the Silver Eel channel to their Dredge program. As of March 2021 Suffolk County has confirmed it will fund the Silver Eel project expected to happen this coming fall of 2021.

Ferry Park (planned for the area north of the Coast Guard Station) is going to happen, but has been delayed due to our anticipated dredging.
