Green River Ferry to reopen next week

MAMMOTH CAVE, Ky.- The Green River Ferry and Green River Ferry Rd. will once again be open to vehicular traffic next week.

Starting Monday, the ferry service will be available seven days a week from 6 a.m.-9:55 p.m.

The newly retrofitted ferry has been certified for service by the U.S. Coast Guard. It can now carry more weight, sit higher in the water and utilize longer ramps to reach further up the shore line.

Unfortunately, commuters should anticipate an additional closure of the ferry later this summer due to additional construction on the south ramp of the vehicle crossing.
