Reservations full at Keystone; Clinton ferry route is alternate

Travelers on the Clinton-Mukilteo route should be prepared for busier-than-normal traffic today.

Advance reservations are full on the Keystone-Port Townsend route until the 7:30 p.m. sailing tonight, and Washington State Ferries is recommending that travelers take the Clinton-Mukilteo run as an alternate, or the Edmonds-Kingtson route.

On the Keystone crossing, officials said Monday morning that limited standby spaces remain with a current three-hour advance arrival advised. Walk-on space is available on all sailings.

Service on the Clinton route was disrupted on Sunday evening after repairs were needed on the M/V Cathlamet.

Sailings from Whidbey were limited to one-boat service, or one sailing per hour, after 7 p.m. on July 25.

Ferry officials announced at 3:45 a.m. today that repairs had been completed on the Cathlamet and the route would return to the normal weekday sailing schedule.
