SURRY, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia Department of Transportation says the Jamestown-Scotland ferry's capacity will be reduced until mid-May while one vessel is out of service.

The department says in a news release that the Pocahontas has been placed in a shipyard for repairs and a mandatory U.S. Coast Guard hull inspection. The Pocahontas can carry up to 70 vehicles.

The Surry, Williamsburg and Virginia ferries are continuing operations. The Surry and Williamsburg can each carry up to 50 vehicles, while the Virginia can carry up to 28 vehicles.

Motorists can expect delays while the Pocahontas is out of service. Other routes are the Interstate 664 Monitor-Merrimac Memorial Bridge-Tunnel, the Benjamin Harrison Bridge on Route 106 or the James River Bridge on Route 17.
