CRITTENDEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - The Cave-In-Rock Ferry is closed due to heavy ice on the Ohio River. The ferry halted service about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Operators say the river is about 75 to 80 percent covered between the banks by a large mass of floating ice. A number of tow boat operators say it's the worst seen on the river in 40 years.
It could take several days for the ferry to resume operation.
The Cave-In-Rock Ferry connects KY 91 with IL Route 1 across the Ohio River between Crittenden County, Kentucky, and Hardin County, Illinois.
