The Dorena-Hickman Ferry has temporarily halted service due to a mechanical issue. The ferry had to close at about 4 p.m. yesterday due to a blown hose in the engine room. The ferry is still closed this morning. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to have a dredge working in the Hickman Harbor in the next week or two. That work is likely to impact the ferry’s operational status for several days. Please watch the Dorena-Hickman Ferry Facebook page for info on the ferry’s operating status.
