Cave-in-Rock Ferry Information
Posted: 1-Jun-2010 8:35PM CDT

This press release from over the winter contains some interesting information about the ferry that crosses the Ohio River between Kentucky and Illinois at Cave-in-Rock, Illinois. From the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways:

Cave-In-Rock Ferry Resumes Service
Ice that halted service since Saturday is cleared from Kentucky Landing
MARION, KY (January 14, 2010) – The Cave-In-Rock Ferry has resumed service after being closed since about 2:00 p.m. Saturday by ice on the Ohio River.
Ice accumulated at the Kentucky landing blocking ferry access to the landing ramp. This morning ferry operator Lonnie Lewis was able to clear the ice away from the landing ramp. That has allowed the ferry to open for service today.
The Cave-In-Rock Ferry connects KY 91 with ILLINOIS Route 1 across the Ohio River between Crittenden County, KY, and Hardin County, IL.
The ferry normally operates from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. central time, 7 days a week. The ferry carries about 500 vehicles across the Ohio River in an average day.
The Cave-In-Rock Ferry is operated by an independent contractor with joint funding from KYTC and Idot through a ferry authority.
