LaHave Ferry Could Be Out Of Service Longer Than Expected

It might be a few weeks before the LaHave River ferry will be back in service. The cable-powered vessel broke free during last Friday's blizzard and ended up grounding down river on Oxner's Beach. Three people on board were not hurt. The vessel was towed off the beach on Monday and berthed in LaHave. Now, Pam Menchenton of the Department of Transportation says there was damage to the ferry's cable hydraulics which need more assessment and repairs.

When in operation, the ferry runs daily between LaHave and East LaHave.
