(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - The Inter-Island Ferry Authority ferry STIKINE is currently providing alternate service between Ketchikan and Metlakatla while the M/V LITUYA undergoes annual maintenance at Alaska Ship & Drydock.

This is scheduled during the STIKINE's layover on its daily roundtrip run between Prince of Wales Island and Ketchikan. On Thursday and Friday service to Annette Island was cancelled because of sea ice up to 8 inches thick in the Metlakatla ferry slip. Ice conditions were reported by the Metlakatla police department.

The IFA reports that STIKINE Metlakatla service will resume on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, weather permitting. The LITUYA is scheduled to be back in service on Thursday.

Call the IFA Ketchikan terminal at 225-4838 for updates.
