Plaquemine Ferry Runs 17-Car Vessel

Friday, February 13, 2009

On Feb. 11, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced that the 35-car M/V Acadia was taken out of service at the Plaquemine ferry landing because of a broken rudder. The M/V Acadia was taken to the shipyard and replaced with the smaller 17-car M/V Feliciana.

Vehicle restrictions for the smaller vessel are: no trailers, no more than two axles, and no more than six wheels. Large trucks and trailers should use the Interstate 10 Mississippi River Bridge.

The operating hours for the Plaquemine ferry are 5 a.m. - 9 p.m. seven days a week. Before traveling, drivers should call the Ferry Toll-Free Information line at 1-888-613-3779 for the status of the ferry, or visit the “Ferry Status” page on the right-hand side of the DOTD Web site.
