MANNS HARBOR, N.C. — Several ferry runs to North Carolina’s Outer Banks are suspended while workers fix problems with one of the vessels.
The state Department of Transportation has announced that several runs at the Swan Quarter-Ocracoke and Cedar Island-Ocracoke routes will be suspended for several days while mechanics work on the Motor Vessel Pamlico.
