PADUCAH, Ky. (KFVS) - The Cave-In-Rock Ferry will reopen at 6 a.m.

The ferry stopped operations on Monday Jan. 13 for a mechanical issue.

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet officials said the Motor Vessell Lonnie Jo that powers the Cave-in-Rock Ferry cracked an engine manifold.

Ferry operator Lonnie Lewis said the closest replacement available was in St. Louis.

Once the manifold was picked up it took about half a day to install it.
