Senator Lesser Thrilled Rocky Hill Ferry Will Resume Operations


State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown) is thrilled that the nation’s oldest continuously operating ferry service that crosses the Connecticut River, the Rocky Hill – Glastonbury Ferry, will resume operations following last weeks Tropical Storm Isaias. Operations will resume tomorrow, August 11, 2020. The utility company said power will be restored by today, August 10. Following restored power, crews can go remove the trees and debris left from the storm which cannot be done until the utility work is done.

“I am excited that residents still have the chance to use the Rocky Hill – Glastonbury Ferry,” said Sen. Lesser. “After the terrible storm caused damage and thousands of power outages across the state, at least crews were able to remove the damage done and get the ferry back up and running.”

The service had been suspended as crews worked to clean up downed trees and wires from last weeks storm. The ferry will resume it’s normal schedule through the rest of the summer.
