The Cave-In-Rock Ferry is closed due to heavy ice on the Ohio River.
According to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the ferry halted service around 11:30 CST today.
Ferry operator Lonnie Lewis says the river is about 75 to 80 percent covered between the banks by a large mass of floating ice.
The ice is moving, but the chunks are getting large enough to present a hazard to the ferry.
Lewis expects it will take several days of above freezing weather to allow the ferry to resume operation.
The Cave-in-Rock Ferry connects KY 91 with Illinois Route 1 across the Ohio River between Crittenden County, Kentucky, and Hardin County, Illinois
