The North Carolina Department of Transportation Ferry Division will begin dredging a portion of the channel used for the Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry route that was affected by Hurricane Matthew.
Because of the work and the tides, passengers using that route may experience sporadic service interruptions over the next two weeks.
Preparation for the operation is already underway, with the dredging to set to begin on Monday, Oct. 31.
As conditions in the channel continually change, the route schedule could be affected on a day-to-day basis. Passengers are strongly urged to stay updated on the schedule prior to traveling by checking the Ferry Division twitter feed or by calling the Hatteras terminal at (252) 986-2353, or the Ocracoke terminal at (252) 928-1665.
More information on the ferry service, including the regular schedule for each route, is available on the Department of Transportation’s Ferry website.
