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. 

 

In summary:

  • The Lummi Island Ferry will be out of service Wednesday, June 9th, from 10:10 a.m. – 3 p.m
  • The last morning run from the Gooseberry Point side will be 9:50 a.m. and the last morning run from the Lummi Island side will be 10 a.m.  
  • No additional runs will be made to clear the docks after the last posted run time. 
  • The repair outage must start on time; travelers should plan accordingly for island travel. 

 

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.
