FERRY HOURS 6am to 6pm
Reminder to motorists that Cave In Rock Ferry will shorten its operating hours starting tomorrow, Sunday, July 1.
Area leaders are hopeful this is a temporary adjustment while funding issues are hashed out between the ferry owner and the states of Kentucky and Illinois.
While the ferry will continue to operate seven days a week, hours will be cut in the evenings. Service will begin at 6 a.m., from the Illinois shore and the final departure from the Illinois landing will be 5:40 p.m. The last run from the Kentucky shore will be at 5:50 p.m. This is a reduction of four hours. The service had been running until 10 p.m.
