Dorena-Hickman Ferry closed due to high winds

Posted: Updated:

The Dorena-Hickman Ferry is closed because of high winds, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet announced Wednesday.  

Capt. Jeremy Newsom said a passing tow boat reported it encountered winds faster than 70 miles per hour near the ferry crossing. The Dorena-Hickman Ferry is halting operations for the remainder of the day Wednesday.

The ferry, which connects Dorena, Missouri, and Hickman, Kentucky, plans to resume operation Thursday morning on the regular winter schedule.
