Ferries To Begin Running On Summer Schedules


The N.C. Department of Transportation's Ferry Division is beginning its transition to a summer schedule to some of its most popular routes.

On May 13, the Hatteras Inlet ferry will be switching from hourly departures to runs every 30 minutes from both terminals. Ferries will initially be running the longer, 55-minute route while channel dredging continues, but the Ferry Division expects to switch over to the original 40-minute route within weeks.

Ferry Division Director Ed Goodwin says the Army Corps of Engineers had to interrupt its dredging operation in Hatteras Inlet to address an emergency in Oregon Inlet. He said once that work is done, the dredge will be back, and he expects the ferries will be running the shorter route by the end of May.
