MANNS HARBOR -Due to a winter storm that impacted the entire coast of the state, the North Carolina Ferry System has suspended service on all seven of its regular routes. Large amounts of snow and ice cover ferry decks, ramps, and terminal parking lots, and in some cases roads leading to the ferry terminals are impassible.
Crews will continue to monitor the situation at each terminal, and each route will resume operations as soon as it can safely do so. Real-time updates are available on the North Carolina Ferry System's Facebook page, and on its Twitter account (@NCDOT_Ferry).
