Floodwaters on the Ohio River are on the rise again and will force the Cave In Rock Ferry to close at 7:30 tonight.
Water is starting to cross the Kentucky approach to the ferry landing on Ky. 91, forcing the ferry to halt operation at sunset.
We will attempt to provide timely notice when the ferry is able to safely resume service.
The ferry connects Ky. 91 with Ill. 1 across the Ohio River between Crittenden County and Hardin County.
The ferry normally operates from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week. It carries about 500 vehicles across the Ohio River in an average day.
