Ferry Routes

This arc datalayer contains ferry routes within Massachusetts. This layer denotes if a ferry route transports freight and/or passengers as well as whether or not it is part of the National Highway System (NHS). The seasonal operation of the ferry route is also provided in this layer. The locations of the ferry routes were digitized from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 1:5000 color orthophoto imagery. MassGIS stores this layer as FERRYROUTES_ARC. The Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) buffered the ferry routes by 200 meters.
