The N.C. Department of Transportation’s Ferry Division is suspending its Currituck-Knotts Island service from Tuesday, July 27 to Friday, July 30 to alleviate the staffing shortage at the Hatteras terminal.

The Hatteras-Ocracoke route is the ferry system’s busiest summertime route. Over the past week, dozens of ferry trips between the two islands have been canceled.

The Currituck-Knotts Island route will resume its scheduled service on July 31.
