Phase I at Important Transportation Hub Expected to be Completed in Time for Busy Summer Season

Bay Shore, NY – Phase I of major renovations at the Maple Avenue Dock and Marina in Bay Shore, just months after being officially announced by the Islip Town Board, are well underway despite one of the most severe winters on record, and are expected to be completed in time for the upcoming summer season.

The $3.2 million renovation project is the first to be done at the dock in nearly three decades and was made possible by funding secured by the Town from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the New York State Economic Development Assistance Program. Board Members approved a contract with Gibson and Cushman Contracting, LLC, in November 2013, which paved the way for significant improvements to be made at the Maple Avenue Dock, which serves as home to Fire Island Ferry Services, the popular Bay Shore eatery Molly Malone’s and a Town pump out station.

Commander Steve Antonacci and the members of the Smith-Wever Post #651 were on hand to thank the Town Board for approving the symbolic street renaming.
