Ferry routes suspended
MOREHEAD CITY— The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division has suspended several ferry operations ahead of Hurricane Sandy. Additional suspensions are likely as conditions deteriorate, particularly at high tides.
All operations have been suspended on the following routes:
The Swan Quarter-Ocracoke ferry will make its last departure at 4 p.m. Saturday. No additional ferries will depart from Swan Quarter until conditions improve.
The Cherry Branch-Minnesott Beach ferry is currently operating on a normal schedule, but will likely suspend operations as conditions continue to deteriorate.
The Southport-Fort Fisher and Bayview-Aurora routes will maintain normal operations as long as possible.
Travelers are encouraged to call each ferry terminal directly with questions about specific ferry routes or schedules.
NCDOT remains on alert and ready to activate emergency operations as needed. Operations will return to normal as soon as conditions are deemed safe.
