Fowler issues statement on Cave-In-Rock Ferry agreement

After months of uncertainty, an agreement on funding has been reached between the Cave-In-Rock Ferry operator and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.

State Senator Dale Fowler (R-Harrisburg) issued the following statement in response to the contract agreement:

“The Cave-In-Rock Ferry is a critical transportation route between Illinois and Kentucky, and ensuring that operations continued without permanent interruption was a priority for everyone involved,” said Sen. Fowler. “I’m encouraged that a resolution was reached, allowing the Ferry to return to normal hours of operation and¬†enabling area travelers to continue utilizing ferry services.”

Full hours of operation for the Ferry will be reinstated beginning on Monday, Oct. 1. Hours will run seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
