Additional Weekend Departures Added to Swan Quarter Route to Assist Travelers to Ocracoke
It was announced earlier this week that travelers using the Hatteras-Ocracoke ferry route could encounter delays, load weight restrictions and possible suspensions due to extreme shoaling of the Hatteras Inlet channel. Suspensions have occurred daily.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is working to resolve the problem, as the channel falls under federal jurisdiction.
Travelers can make a reservation for the Swan Quarter-Ocracoke route by calling 800-BY-FERRY (293-3779) and pressing 2 or online at www.ncferry.org. To sign-up to receive messages on Twitter regarding suspensions or route changes, go to www.twitter.com/ncdot_ferry.
