LeConte sails again after mechanical issue

The state ferry LeConte is back in service.

An unidentified mechanical problem sidelined the vessel yesterday (Tuesday), forcing the cancellation of its scheduled roundtrip between Juneau and Haines.

Technicians worked overnight to fix the issue. The LeConte departed Juneau for Haines at about 7:00 this morning (Wednesday). It’s due back at the Auke Bay terminal about 9:00 tonight.
