Jamestown-Scotland Ferry Featured on WTKR.

WRA provided the drone footage for the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry segment, featured on WTKR's Coast Live. WRA also designed the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry Dolphin Replacement. The ferry is a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) operated ferry near Williamsburg. WRA studied replacement options for the failure-prone timber berthing dolphins, designed the selected large fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) monopiles, evaluated installation methods, and tested actual energy absorption. The project overcame challenges to provide a high-strength, durable replacement that enhances safety, reduces maintenance cost, and service disruptions at the ferry.
