PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — Officials say a ferry that carries vehicles across the Mississippi River between Kentucky and Missouri is expected to resume operations this week. The Dorena-Hickman Ferry closed on May 5 for engine maintenance. A statement from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says parts for the work are expected to be delivered in time for the ferry to resume service sometime on Tuesday. Officials said the work was originally set to be completed last week, but several parts were in short supply. The ferry connects Kentucky 1354 at Hickman, Kentucky, with Missouri Route A and Route 77 near Dorena, Missouri.
