Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 25, for major work on the Chappy Ferry ramp. On that day, we plan to remove the old ramp on the Edgartown side and to replace it with a brand new one. In case of a storm on that date, the project will be done the following Saturday, May 2.

We will be unable to carry vehicles from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. as there will be no way to get them on or off of the ferry. However, foot passengers will be accommodated throughout the day.

Leaders across the island are having to make difficult decisions about dealing with our current crisis. The issues that they are facing, the solutions that they are devising and the results that they are hoping for are all in uncharted territory.

As Teddy Roosevelt once said: “In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.”
