The N.C. Department of Transportation says two departures on the Cedar Island-Ocracoke route are being canceled this week to allow the inspection of the Motor Vessel Cedar Island.
A statement from the department said the two scheduled departures -- 7 a.m. from Cedar Island and 10 a.m. from Ocracoke -- are canceled on Wednesday.
The inspection was scheduled, and officials say it must take place in order for the ferry to continue operating.
Six other departures will run as scheduled.
