ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS -

Ice remaining after last week’s snowstorm continues to cause problems across New Jersey, especially for ferries.

Seastreak announced a modified schedule for Wednesday for its service in and out of Atlantic Highlands.

The schedule began at 6 a.m., with ferries expected to leave for Wall Street and East 35th Street at 6, 7, 8 and 8:55 a.m. 

However, Seastreak captains may require priority boarding for the departures, meaning ticket book holders will be boarded first. Of the ticket book holders, 40 will be first to board, followed by 10 trip ticket book holders.  

Only then, if room allows, will round-trip and one-way ticket holders be boarded. No tickets will be sold for priority boarded departures until all ticket holders are boarded.

Meanwhile, the Cape May-Lewes Ferry is scheduled to resume limited operations Wednesday, with one round-trip departure. It's scheduled to leave Cape May at 2:30 p.m. and then Lewes at 4:15 p.m.

The ferry has been docked for six days. An ice breaker has been working all week to try to clear a path.
