Dorena-Hickman Ferry reopening between Kentucky, Missouri

HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky ferry is reopening after being closed for a month because one of its engines was damaged.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the Dorena-Hickman Ferry plans to resume service at 7 a.m. CDT Saturday.

The ferry closed May 12 when a fuel injector imploded, damaging one of the engines.

The ferry connects Kentucky 1354 at Hickman, Kentucky, 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. The only direct route between the two states is the Dorena-Hickman Ferry.
