St. Francisville/New Roads Ferry Resumes Ops

Monday, May 11, 2009

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced on May 8 that the St. Francisville/New Roads ferry service has resumed operations with a 35-car vessel.  The ferry service had previously been running with a 17-car vessel until crews completed repairs to the fuel tank of the main St. Francisville/New Roads ferry, and the U.S. Coast Guard approved the ferry to return to service.

The ferry will maintain its normal hours of operation from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., seven days a week. Vehicle restrictions that were in place for the smaller vessel have been lifted. Before traveling, drivers can call the Toll-Free Ferry 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 (www.dotd.state.la.us/). 

Drivers can also access updates on the ferry through Twitter by visiting www.twitter.com/StFran_Ferry.  By creating a Twitter account, drivers can receive automatic updates on the ferry’s status via their Twitter Web page or text message. For questions about DOTD’s Twitter page or any other DOTD-related questions, contact DOTD’s Customer Service Center at 1-877-4LA-DOTD (1-877-452-3683).  The center’s normal business hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
