Wednesday, June 9th Emergency Repair Outage Planned for Lummi Island Ferry
The Whatcom Chief will be out of service from 10:10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9th, for repairs to the Gooseberry Point dock hydraulic system. The last maintenance outage revealed failures which must be addressed in a timely fashion, as to avoid an unscheduled shutdown of the ferry system.
Repair activities are weather dependent, and the times and/or date may change. If schedule changes occur, updates will be posted at www.whatcomcounty.us/ferry.
The Public Works Department would like to thank everyone in advance for their cooperation and patience during these necessary repairs.
