Ferry service has been resumed.
Whatcom County Public Works Ferry Division suspended Whatcom Chief ferry service about noon today due to “a dock issue at Gooseberry Point.”
Riders were forewarned yesterday to expect longer run times as a result of needing to manually operate the Gooseberry dock.
A recent scheduled inspection revealed a need for emergency repairs to the Gooseberry Point dock. Those repairs were reportedly made overnight after the last scheduled run Saturday, March 4th.
