SURRY, Va. (AP) - The largest of the Jamestown-Scotland ferries will undergo maintenance work starting next week.

According to The Daily Press (http://bit.ly/1IaX7pC), Virginia Department of Transportation spokeswoman Laurie Simmons says beginning Monday, the Pocahontas will return to the shipyard for crews to rebuild propulsion drive systems, perform engine work and take care of other maintenance tasks.

Simmons says the projects are expected to last until March 2016.

The ferry’s absence means there will be 20 fewer vehicles an hour using the ferry services that can travel across the James River.

Three other vessels - the Williamsburg, Surry and Virginia - will continue to operate.
