Mammoth Cave National Park has released information regarding the temporary closing of the Green River Ferry, which has been shut down since December 15 due to mechanical problems. The ferry remains closed while maintenance staff await delivery and installation of a hydraulic motor used to power the paddlewheel.
“We were able to find a replacement motor in Oregon,” said Superintendent Sarah Craighead. “It is being shipped to the park this week. Park staff will install it and get the ferry up and running as quickly as possible.”
The ferry is important to park operations and to local residents who commute through the park.
