The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division will be running an alternate schedule on Pamlico Sound between Cedar Island, Swan Quarter and Ocracoke due to critical shoaling issues in the ferry channel just outside of Ocracoke’s Silver Lake Harbor.

The Army Corps of Engineers’ contractor Cottrell Dredging will use the Dredge Lexington in Bigfoot Slough channel to clear the shoaling. Once depths in channel return to acceptable levels, the Ferry Division will resume its regular schedule.

Schedule changes can be found @NCFerryPamSound on Twitter.
