State ferry Matanuska in Juneau for repairs

Posted: Friday, August 29, 2008

JUNEAU - The state ferry Matanuska underwent repairs for a broken head bolt on one of its engines Thursday in Juneau.

Roger Wetherell, spokesman for the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, said they expected the vessel to return to service later in the day.

The Matanuska missed a scheduled sailing, but Wetherell said the Malaspina filled in on the Lynn Canal run.
