The Steamship Authority board of governors will discuss a full slate of issues, including freight and passenger service between the Vineyard and New Bedford, at their monthly meeting Tuesday morning on the Island.

The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at the Oak Bluffs Public Library meeting room.

Topics on the agenda include a request from Hy-Line cruises to provide additional service between Hyannis and the Vineyard and between the two islands. There will also be an update on a request by Seastreak to provide service between New Bedford and Nantucket, with or without stops in Oak Bluffs.

The governors will also revisit a longstanding issue, the subject of freight service between New Bedford and the islands. The board is scheduled to hear options for that service and will discuss what information the board needs from staff about those options. The long-simmering idea of opening up a route to ship freight from the Vineyard to New Bedford was renewed two years ago during discussions about renovating the Woods Hole terminal.

Updates will also be provided on several ongoing capital projects, including the construction of the new freight vessel Woods Hole. Vineyard Steamship governor Marc Hanover said last week that the Woods Hole, which is scheduled to begin making ferry trips in May 2016, will likely be assigned to an Oak Bluffs route. The $40 million hybrid vessel is under construction in Louisiana.

Other business includes an update on the Woods Hole terminal reconstruction project, including a schematic design for new SSA administrative offices, a mid-life refurbishment project for the ferry Martha’ Vineyard, and approval of the 2016 operating budget.
