Dorena-Hickman Ferry still closed between Kentucky, Missouri

Dorena Hickman Ferry

HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says more work is needed on the out-of-service Dorena-Hickman Ferry that connects Kentucky and Missouri, and it will probably remain out of service until this weekend. The ferry temporarily halted service Sunday due to a mechanical issue. Capt. Jeremy Newsom said in a news release that the ferry probably won’t be back in service until Saturday or Sunday due to time needed for repairs and delivery of parts. Closure of the ferry creates a 75-mile detour with an additional 90 minutes of travel time for commuters.
