Dorena Hickman Ferry

HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says repairs on a ferry between Kentucky and Missouri are nearing completion, and the service will likely remain closed until sometime Friday. The Dorena-Hickman Ferry in western Kentucky needed engine repairs and is awaiting tests on the engines by a factory representative. The tests were expected to be finished sometime Friday morning. The ferry connects Kentucky 1354 at Hickman with Missouri Route A and Route 77 near Dorena, Missouri. Missouri and Kentucky are the only border states that aren’t directly connected by a road or bridge. The ferry is the only direct route between the two states.
