HICKMAN, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky ferry that is the only direct route between Kentucky and Missouri has closed until further notice due to a mechanical issue.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says the Dorena-Hickman Ferry closed shortly before noon Tuesday. A marine mechanic is being called in to determine what repairs are needed, but it’s not yet known how long the ferry will be out of operation.

The ferry connects Kentucky 1354 at Hickman with Missouri Route A and Route 77 near Dorena, Missouri.

The cabinet says Kentucky and Missouri are the only border states that aren’t directly connected by a road.
