The Herald News: Flanagan wants to bring Block Island Ferry to Fall River

The city is working to arrange for ferry service to leave from the State Pier, arriving at Block Island less than two 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.
