HICKMAN COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - The Dorena-Hickman Ferry is expected to resume service at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, October 5.

According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the ferry was temporarily closed due to propeller driveshaft issues.

A repair crew spent much of Monday to complete the adjustments on the propeller driveshaft.

Round trip passage for passenger vehicles is $14 with additional tolls for trucks, motor homes, and vehicles pulling trailers. There are discounts for vehicles making return crossings.

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

Drivers may check on the ferry’s operating status by calling 731-693-0210 or checking their Facebook account.
