The dock is being lengthened at the foot of Queen Street.

The large barge is clearing a path for the bigger Wolfe Island ferry, the Wolfe Islander 4 — a state-of-the-art electric ferry.

The vessel is currently under construction in Europe and is slated for delivery next year.

The dock expansion is meant to be finished in 2023 as well.
