While LeConte is in Overhaul
September 01, 2005
The ITB asks for replacement passenger service between Juneau, Angoon, Sitka, Hoonah, Tenakee Springs, Kake, and Petersburg starting on October 13, and lasting about five weeks through mid-November when LeConte is expected to return to service. The contracted service will cover the LeConte's published schedule for passengers. Contracted vehicle service will be limited to Saturday and Monday Juneau-Angoon-Juneau sailings only. Limited Kake and Hoonah vehicle traffic will be provided by the M/V Taku.
"We intend to provide
seamless coverage for the communities the LeConte serves,"
said AMHS General Manager Captain John Falvey. "We do not
have another Alaska ferry available that is capable of calling
on all the northern Panhandle ports, so contracting for this
short period of time is the logical solution."
