BAYVIEW, N.C. (WITN) - The state Ferry Division says runs should resume this afternoon on the Pamlico River.

Mechanical problems with the M/V Russell forced the ferry to stop operations early this morning.

Those repairs have been completed, and the ferry expects to resume with a 2:00 p.m. crossing leaving from Bayview.


Officials with the Pamlico River Ferry Operation say the boat is not running as of Thursday morning due to mechanical issues with the M/V Russell.

Ferry Operation Manager Sherry Hollowell says crews are working to get the operation up and running as soon as possible, but there is no word on when that may be.

If needed, the department will enlist a temporary replacement vessel.
