“For over five decadessince the construction of Interstate 95 along New Haven’s harbor—our city has been cut off from one of its greatest natural resources, the New Haven Harbor. The construction of the Boathouse at Canal Dock takes steps to remedy that and will provide residents and visitors to New Haven the opportunity to enjoy the harbor and water recreation.” – Former Mayor John DeStefano Jr.

Construction is underway! After more than a decade of thoughtful planning by the City Plan Department of New Haven, the Connecticut Department of Transportation, and the Federal Highway Administration, the Canal Dock Boathouse could become reality by summer of 2017. cropped-Present-Future.png
