Ferry remains closed today

The Cave In Rock Ferry has been closed since March 12 due
to flooding along the Ohio River.
The Cave In Rock Ferry remains closed today due to flooding along the Ky. 91 North approach to the ferry landing. Ohio River floodwaters are receding slower than anticipated, but Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd said he expects the service will resume either Friday or Saturday.

At 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, the river stage was at 44.3 feet as measured at Shawneetown, Ill. Flood stage is 33 feet, so a flood warning remains in effect along the Ohio River in Crittenden County until 1 p.m. Saturday. The river is expected to fall below flood stage sometime Saturday morning.

Updates on ferry operation will be posted here as they become available.
