How to reach:
To reach the tide station and tidal bench marks from Interstate 95 North in New Haven, take Exit 50 for Woodward Avenue and proceed down ramp for 0.5 km (0.3 mi). Keep right at the fork and follow signs for the Port Area, make a right U-turn and proceed northwest for 0.6 km (0.4 mi) toward Waterfront Street. Turn left onto Waterfront Street and proceed south for 0.5 km (0.3 mi) to the guard house and entrance to the PSEG Power Plant at the end of the street. Visitors must call one or two days prior, and check in with the guard at the gate upon arrival. Continue south on the entrance road to the second guard house, and check in with the guard. Ask the guard to unlock the fuel dock (pier). Follow the entrance road to the fuel dock. The tide station is on the south side of the offshore end of the fuel dock, and the tidal bench marks are located on the fuel dock and along a road running north and parallel with the water.
