ORIGINAL STORY

WSIL-- The Cave-in-Rock ferry has temporarily shut down services due to high winds.  

Services were halted Wednesday at 6:00 a.m. after wind gusts reportedly approached 40 miles per hour, creating hazardous river conditions at the river crossing. .

The ferry normally operates from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. 7 days a week and carries about 500 vehicles across the Ohio river daily. 


The ferry is shut down until further noticed, and drivers will need to seek a alternative route.
