Ferry trouble

The Chronicle is reporting:

Officials have suspended ferry service to and from the Alameda Main Street Pier terminal as a safety precaution so inspectors can check potential problems with the pier pilings.

    An update from the Alameda/Oakland ferry website ( http://www.eastbayferry.com/headlines/rider_advisory_update.html ):

    Rain Delays Alameda Main Street
    Barge Project

    Due to the poor weather forecast for this weekend, we will not begin the Main Street ferry barge refurbishment project tomorrow as expected. We made this decision based on concerns raised by Marine Express, Inc., the project contractor, that anticipated weather conditions would create dangerous working conditions at the dock. The project is now scheduled to begin the weekend of February 17, weather permitting.
