Guemes Island Ferry 1:00 p.m. run canceled Monday, May 22

Skagit County crews will repair the Guemes Island Ferry wingwall on Monday, May 22. The repair consists of removing and replacing a damaged timber on the west wall. Work will start at 11:45 a.m. and should take about 1.5 hours to complete; therefore, we will not do a second 11:15 a.m. sailing. In order to have time to complete the repair, the 1:00 p.m. run is canceled. This work is tidal-dependent requiring a low tide, which is why the work will not be done after-hours. In order to cause the least amount of impact, a lunch time work window is chosen, which also happens to correspond with a -1.8 ft. tide on Monday. We will do our best to finish the work early and go back in to service early if possible. At this point, we are planning to re-enter service at 1:30 p.m. Please plan accordingly.
