State Pier operator Gateway has extended the deadline for port tenants to move out, giving commercial fishermen and a major local road salt distributor an extra four months to find a new home. The extension is not coronavirus related, rather the result of negotiations among Gateway, the Connecticut Port Authority and tenants who were expecting to be displaced March 31 to accommodate the offshore wind industry. Construction activity associated with a $157 million planned overhaul of the port is expected to begin later this year as it converts into a wind turbine staging area for joint partners Ørsted and Eversource. Gateway President Jim Dillman said DRVN Enterprises, two commercial fishermen working off CV Pier and Blakeslee Construction all will have 120 days beyond the original March 31 deadline. While there is a four-month extension, Kooris said all parties are clear that any further extensions are unlikely. Skanska’s time at the pier also was extended through the end of July.
