According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, it was necessary to stop the ferry service because the dredging operation would block ferry access to the Kentucky Landing.

During the downtime, KYTC says operators of the Dorena-Hickman Ferry completed some general maintenance work.

According to KYTC, dredge work in the harbor continues, but it has moved away from the landing used by the ferry.
