Temporary Ferry Carries Farm Equipment near Shawneetown Bridge
Posted: 30-Apr-2005 5:52AM CDT

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has hired a ferry that will carry farm equipment across the Ohio River near the Shawneetown Bridge. Traffic on the bridge is currently restricted due to a repainting project, and an analysis found that it would cost less to temporarily operate a ferry than to periodically clear equipment from the bridge to allow oversized farm equipment to pass.
