Roosevelt Island Ferry Dock Construction Begins With Crane & Barge Spotted - Service On Schedule To Begin In August Says RIOC President

Kathleen asked yesterday:

Has anyone heard any updates on when the ferry will be starting?? Supposed to be August 2017, correct?
Yesterday, I asked Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) President Susan Rosenthal
I just noticed this large barge and Crain where ferry dock is to be located.

Is this the start of Roosevelt Island Ferry Dock construction?

Any update on ferry status?
Ms Rosenthal replied:
You are correct. That is the start. We do not have a precise starting date but no change from August.
