HIRA has received confirmation of the change of vessels for the Transport Canada mandatory vessel inspection. The County will be distributing flyers all weekend on the County operated ferry with the following message:
” Frontenac-Howe Islander – Service Interruption
The Frontenac-Howe Islander (15-car County operated ferry) will be out of service on Monday November 3rd from approximately 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to accommodate the refitting of our piers. The ferry will be leaving for an inspection and will be replaced by the Quinte Loyalist ferry which will operate from 6 am until 10 pm each day. There will be a weight restriction of 6 tonne per axle or 25 tonne gross. Tandem axle trucks will not be permitted on the replacement ferry.
The Township’s ferry will be operating 24 hour per day until the return of the Frontenac-Howe Islander ferry from its mandatory Transport Canada inspection.
The County had this information confirmed on Friday afternoon. If you have any questions or concerns please call me @ 613 542 4959.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation,
Marine Supervisor ”
