BAYVIEW-AURORA, PAMLICO COUNTY -

The N.C. Department of Transportation will suspend ferry service on the Bayview-Aurora route across the Pamlico River this weekend for repairs.

According to the NCDOT, the ferry route will be shut down this Saturday and Sunday to allow repairs to the ferry slip on the Bayview side.

The repairs require the Ferry Division's Skyco crane barge to be placed in the ferry slip, which will prevent the ferry from docking at the terminal, according to the NCDOT.
