Ferry to aid Valdez residents on Monday


JUNEAU, Alaska - The ferry Aurora is slated to sail under a revised schedule Monday to accommodate Valdez residents due to the closing of the Richardson Highway.

One additional direct Whittier to Valdez sailing is now available for online booking for Monday.

Alaska Marine Highway staff will be contacting affected passengers. For more information, the ferry system is encouraging people to call their local terminal at 1-907-465-3941 or toll free at 1-800-642-0066.

Avalanches last week closed off the Richardson Highway, Valdez's only road link.
