Ron Inman, chairman of the board for the New Bourbon Regional Port Authority. which manages the operations of the Ste. Genevieve-Modoc Ferry, said last week the ferry would be closed until March 1.
Traffic generally is slower on the ferry in the winter months, but high Mississippi River levels were expected to create issues for the ferry this week, and any flooding that takes place in the agricultural fields along the river would limit the need for farmers to transport equipment across the river.
