PORT TOWNSEND, Wash. (AP) - Washington State Ferries is ready to add foot ferry service between Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula and Keystone on Whidbey Island.

Marta Coursey (kor-SAY'), a ferry system spokeswoman, says the first passenger-only run is scheduled to leave Port Townsend at 3:45 p.m. Sunday, followed by a 4 p.m. run out of Keystone.

Car-ferry service on the Port Townsend-Keystone route was halted on Tuesday when the state's four oldest vessels were pulled from service because of concerns about cracks and corrosion on their hulls.
