The Dorena-Hickman Ferry is back up and running, after being closed more than a month because of the high Mississippi River.

Ferry operations stopped June 25th when the Mississippi river rose too high for safe passage.

Captain Ed Floyd noted that high water is very rare this time of year.  An engine issue shut down the ferry for an extended period earlier this year. 

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

The ferry resumes operation at 7 a.m. with its regular summer schedule.
