PADUCAH, Ky. (KFVS) - The Cave-in-Rock Ferry reopened at 8 a.m. on March 14.

The ferry had been temporarily closed at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 5 due to rising floodwaters.

Floodwaters dropped sufficiently overnight to allow the KYTC Crittenden County Highway Maintenance Crew to remove debris from the roadway and check the roadway for erosion. 

The Cave-In-Rock Ferry connects KY 91 with ILLINOIS Route 1 across the Ohio River between Crittenden County, Kentucky, and Hardin County, Illinois.
