NEW INFO: Ferry Schedule Changes

The DOT says one ferry route in Eastern Carolina is returning to normal.

The Bayview-Aurora ferry route will resume normal operations Thursday with the 4:45 p.m. departure from Aurora.

The ferry was shut down Wednesday due to a mechanical problem with the Motor Vessel Gov. Daniel Russell.
