Members of the public have until Sep. 10 to comment on the proposed Alaska Marine Highway System schedule for the summer of 2014.
The Department of Transportation says in a statement that the public comment period is an opportunity for communities to review and give input on the schedule in consideration of local events.
A teleconference to hear comments and consider adjustments is scheduled for Sep. 11 at 10 a.m. for Southeast Alaska schedules and 1:30 p.m. for Southwest and Southcentral Alaska schedules. The toll free number to participate in either teleconference is: 1-800-315-6338, conference code 3902#.
