DORENA, MO (KFVS) -

The Dorena-Hickman Ferry is open and back on the normal summer operating schedule as of Tuesday, August 23.

The ferry had been operating as it was able due to dredging in the Hickman Harbor. The dredge often blocked ferry access to the Kentucky Landing.

With the dredging completed, the Dorena-Hickman Ferry reopened and went back on the regular schedule around noon Tuesday.

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