Western Ky. ferry to Missouri reopens
HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) – The Dorena-Hickman Ferry on the western tip of Kentucky has reopened after weeks of high water.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet spokesman Keith Todd said the ferry that connects Hickman, Kentucky to Missouri near Dorena reopened on the winter schedule Tuesday.
It has been closed for several weeks since floodwaters covered the ferry landing on the Kentucky side.
The ferry is the only direct route from Missouri to Kentucky, since they are the only border states in the U.S. that aren’t directly connected by a road.
