Newport Intermodal Ferry Terminals
Newport, RI

Pare, as part of a multi-discipline engineering team, was responsible for all waterside planning, design and cost estimating for marine transportation facilities to link with the Gateway Visitors Center in Newport, RI. 

Pare developed conceptual plans for marine terminals at seven sites, including several alternative layouts at each site. Pare then performed preliminary engineering and cost estimating for support pilings, floats, bulkheads, fendering, and mooring systems and provided consultation to the team for navigational issues, ship characteristics and maneuverability, approach channel and berth dimensions, dredging issues, and coastal permit processes.

Pare provided preliminary and final design/specifications for all waterside improvements at the Long Wharf and Fort Adams Terminals, including new seawalls and riprap, bulkhead rehabilitation, new piers and wave attenuators, and floating dock systems for harbor taxis and a high-speed commuter ferry.  Pare also designed improvements at one existing pier to accommodate an offshore ferry and handicapped-accessible fishing; prepared and made presentations at a number of public meetings and hearings; and provided geotechnical, structural, and waterfront-related consultation to the RI Department of Transportation during construction.
