(JUNEAU, Alaska) – The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities has completed temporary repairs to the Skagway Ferry Terminal dock that was submerged the morning of Thursday, April 24. Ferry service is scheduled to resume Sunday, May 11.
The dock has been thoroughly inspected for structural damage and was found to be in good condition. Temporary repairs were made to the passenger ramp, electrical system and the vehicle ramp hydraulic system. Permanent repair work will be ongoing and should not interfere with scheduled ferry operations.
The M/V LeConte will conduct a non-revenue service test run to Skagway on May 9 to evaluate any necessary adjustments to mooring, loading and unloading operations at the facility. This test run will not affect ferry service between Haines and Juneau.
