Ferry Weight Restrictions!

Post date: Oct 02, 2020 1:37:44 AM

Temporary repairs have been made to the mainland ferry ramp to prevent detachment of the large hinged apron that rests on the ferry deck.  The welds attaching this component to the ramp have recently begun to fail progressively, in part due to excessive wear by heavy wheel loads. Until permanent repairs can be made after the ferry shuts down, no vehicles with gross weights of over 9 tons per axle will be permitted on the ferry.  Please make sure that drivers have accurate weight information for any heavy vehicles or trailers to show they are in compliance with this requirement.
