Ferries Swapped Due to Mechanical Issues

January 9, 2014

The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD) announced it will swap vessels at the Lower Algiers to Chalmette ferry route due to a mechanical issue. The Motor Vessel Levy will be replaced with the smaller M/V St. John at 1 p.m., today.

The smaller vessel will run indefinitely, so ferry passengers should expect delays during peak travel times. DOTD said it will alert the public when the larger boat is ready to resume service.
