People will have a chance to provide input on a replacement vessel for the ferry Tustumena. Tuesday night the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities will hold an open meeting at the Kodiak Public Library to give folks an opportunity to add their voice to the department’s replacement process and hear what plans are already in the works for a new ferry.
Much needed repairs to the Tustumena last year kept the vessel out of the water for months on end and left many places in south central Alaska with reduced or no ferry service. That ordeal reemphasized to the state the need for a new ferry. While a new vessel is still a few years out, the final design is scheduled to be completed by summer 2015.
Tuesday’s meeting will begin at 5 p.m. at the library’s multipurpose room and is open to the public.
