PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) - One of two ferries that had closed due to mechanical issues has reopened.

The Cave-in-Rock Ferry, which carries about 500 vehicles daily across the Ohio River between Kentucky and Illinois, reopened at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Kentucky transportation officials said.

The Dorena-Hickman Ferry, which carries vehicles across the Mississippi River between Kentucky and Missouri, is expected to resume service on Saturday, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet said in a statement. The ferry remained closed for additional engine repairs. A dredge is working in the Hickman Harbor, and officials hope the dredge work can be completed about the same time as the engine repairs are done.

More information about the service schedule of the Dorena-Hickman Ferry and the Cave-in-Rock Ferry can be found online.
