Edmonds-Kingston ferry run back to two boats
The Edmonds-Kingston ferry route is now back to two boats.
The Washington State Ferries had transferred one of the Edmonds-Kingston route boats to the Seattle-Bainbridge run following a power outage on the ferry Tacoma Tuesday, resulting in long delays for drivers in both Edmonds and Kingston Wednesday. On Thursday afternoon, the ferry system added a second ferry, the Chelan, to restore two-boat service to the Edmonds-Kingston run.
As a result, the Anacortes-Sidney, B.C. line, normal route for the Chelan, was suspended Thursday afternoon and Friday, causing cancellation of some ferry riders’ reservations.
The Anacortes-Sidney, BC international route will resume on Saturday.
