SCHENECTADY — Plans to construct a 680-foot public dock at Mohawk Harbor are moving forward following a pandemic-induced delay.
The plans date back to 2016, when the Galesi Group began seeking state funding to construct a 1,000-foot dock near Rivers Casino & Resort amid the harbor’s ongoing development. The size of the dock would later be reduced to 680 feet in 2018 in order to reduce costs.
Schenectady Metroplex Development Authority applied for the funding on behalf of Galesi Group and the city, eventually securing more than $1.5 million, including around $950,000 in 2019, needed to advance the project, according to Metroplex Chairman Ray Gillen.
