UPDATE: JULY 7, 2020, 5:43PM: We just received word from Mammoth Cave that the ferry is closing for a repair: From MCNP: "The Green River Ferry in Mammoth Cave National Park is temporarily closed to all traffic through noon on Wednesday, July 8 in order to repair an issue with the ferry’s access gate. Repairs are scheduled for early in the day on Wednesday. The ferry service will resume once the needed repairs have been completed."

The Green River Ferry at Mammoth Cave reopened yesterday and we took a short trip to check it out. While the short video below won't make you hold on to your seats, it was nice being able to see the ferry in action once again after being shut down for nearly a year.
Many folks in the area rely on the ferry to help with their commutes across the river. Not having the ferry available causes several county residents to add at least an hour to their routes each day.
We activated the GoPro on the Voicemobile as we went across the Green River yesterday.
The ferry is only open temporarily before it will temporarily be closed again to complete renovation on the south side ramp. Mammoth Cave NP told the Edmonson Voice that the repairs will be on the south ramp of the ferry. They are still in negotiations for the next closure, so a date for the repair has not yet been set.
