High Winds Close Ferry for Day

February 18th, 2013 - By Charles Choate

The Dorena-Hickman Ferry has halted operations due to high winds.

The ferry shut down upon reaching the Kentucky shore about 10:00 a.m. and will remain closed for the rest of today.

Captain Ed Floyd says swells mid-river have been running about 6 feet.

The wind has been running about 30 to 35 miles per hour with occasional gusts nearing 50 mph at times.

Captain Floyd expects the ferry to be able to reopen to traffic on the regular winter schedule Tuesday morning.

The Dorena-Hickman Ferry connects KY 1354 at Hickman, Kentucky, with Missouri Route A and Route 77 near Dorena, Missouri.
