Narragansett's Galilee Boat Launch finally reopened last week after months of delays.

The launch, which is one of the most popular in the state, was rebuilt at a cost of about $670,000. The new launch is bigger and can accommodate people with disabilities. It was originally scheduled to reopen in the spring.

Officials on Friday held a ceremony marking its reopening, WPRI.com reported.

Local fishermen said they were frustrated the project took so long, claiming it affected their business, according to WPRI.
