Summer Road Construction

Alaska DOT&PF will have several road construction projects continuing throughout the coming summer, both on major highways and in several AMHS communities. Projects on highways around AMHS ports may cause delays to ferry travelers. The www.511.alaska.gov website provides project details and expected delays from flagging operations and/or road closures. Communities directly impacted are; Whittier, with construction on the Seward Hwy between mileposts 75 and 90, further details can be found at www.sewardhighway75to90.com, and Haines, with construction on the Haines Hwy from milepost 3.9 thru 12.2, with details available at https://haineshwy.com.

Making Connections

The MV LeConte provides service from our Juneau hub to multiple ports in the northern panhandle of Southeast Alaska. The vessel makes regular stops in the communities of Hoonah, Gustavus, Tenakee, Angoon and Pelican with additional service to North Lynn Canal twice weekly. If you are planning a trip to Southeast Alaska and would like to visit one of these communities, connections can be made from Haines, Skagway or Juneau. The MV LeConte will continue to provide this service throughout the summer months. For more details on these communities and specific routing see our Communities & Vessel Routes pages.
