Fall River State Pier

The Fall River State Pier is located along the east bank of the Taunton River at 1 Water Street in Fall River, MA. The 10-acre (4 hectare) property is one of several state piers owned by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.  It is operated by Fall River Line Pier, Inc. as a marine terminal for general cargo and breakbulk industry, as well as commercial fishing vessels, ferry service, and the cruise ship industry.  

The Fall River State Pier is located approximately 0.1 miles (0.1 km) from Interstate Route I-195 and approximately 37 nautical miles (68 km) from the leading edge of the offshore wind energy areas located south of Martha’s Vineyard, although it lies partially under the Charles M. Braga Jr. Memorial Bridge.  The site is accessible by two deep water berths, on-site rail, and a trucking fleet in close proximity to the interstate highway system.
