The Herald News: The days of having to drive to Point Judith or Newport, to pick up the Block Island ferry may soon be a thing of the past.
The city is working to arrange for ferry service to leave from the State Pier, arriving at Block Island less than 2 hours later. Mayor Will Flanagan has set a target date of late June for a trial run, with corresponding studies to determine how high the demand would be for the service.
