800 tour new Alaska ferry as fate of marine highway looms
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - More than 800 people toured the newest Alaska state ferry Sunday, even though the entire Alaska Marine Highway System faces an uncertain future.
The Tazlina will make day runs, beginning by going from Juneau to Haines. It then will go from Haines to Skagway and back. The ferry will overnight in Haines.
Gov. Mike Dunleavy's administration plans to weigh an overhaul of the system aimed at limiting state support. No ferry reservations are being taken beyond Oct. 1.
