State seeks critiques on PWS summer ferry schedule

State transportation officials have set a Jan. 26 deadline for comments on the Prince William Sound area summer ferry schedule on the Alaska Marine Highway System (AMHS).

The area includes Cordova, Tatitlek, Valdez, Whittier, Chenega and Homer.

Of the nine vessels in the AMHS fleet, the Aurora and LeConte are compatible with the terminals and service needs of the Prince William Sound service area, AMHS officials said.
