EBDG to Design Port Aransas Ferry

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

Seattle-based Elliott Bay Design Group LLC (EBDG) was selected by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), Corpus Christi District, to prepare a design for a new 28-car ferry for service between Port Aransas and Harbor Island.  This short route forms the continuation of Texas State Highway 361 across the Corpus Christi Channel.

This multi-phased design contract was awarded in January 2008 with the first effort being a Design Study Report.  The Design Study Report included a hull and superstructure configuration study, propulsion and steering configuration study, propulsion and steering cost study and a capital cost study.  Follow-on phases include Contract Design, Bid Support and Construction Liaison.  With the first phase complete, EBDG has moved on to the contract design which is expected to wrap up in October 2008.
