Funding would be needed to bring back Inter-Island Ferry
November 2, 2022
Restoration of Inter-Island Ferry Authority service from Coffman Cove on Prince of Wales Island to Wrangell and Petersburg would take money. The service ended in 2008, and the two communities will talk about what it would take to bring back the run, how much it would cost and who would pay.
The Petersburg borough assembly last month voted unanimously to send a letter to the Wrangell assembly to start talks on possibly restoring the route.
Wrangell assembly members at their Oct. 25 meeting directed Borough Manager Jeff Good to talk with his counterpart in Petersburg and report back.
