The Department of Transportation’s website crashed late-Friday morning, preventing travelers from making online ferry reservations with Alaska Marine Highway, an agency spokeswoman said.

The website remained down Saturday afternoon, with spokeswoman Shannon McCarthy still waiting for an update on its status.

McCarthy said a failed server in Juneau caused the crash and technicians have been working round the clock to fix the problem. She said work will continue through the weekend, if necessary.

She says the state’s 511 traveler information and the railroad websites remains live.

McCarthy said travelers can still book ferries by calling the terminals directly.
