Ferry to re-open at 6 a.m. Saturday

The owner of the Cave In Rock Ferry plans to reopen to traffic on Saturday morning.

The ferry has been closed for more than a week due to Ohio River floodwaters blocking Ky. 91 North near the Kentucky landing. Floodwaters are expected to drop off the roadway during the overnight hours.

The ferry plans to resume service at 6 a.m. Saturday on the regular operating schedule.

The Cave In Rock Ferry connects Ky. 91 North 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. The ferry carries about 500 vehicles across the Ohio River in an average day.
