Hydraulic Pump Creates More Delays For LaHave Ferry

Problems with a hydraulic pump has created more delays for the LaHave River Ferry. The Department of Transportation says they noticed the pump wasn't working properly last week during sea trials. The pump helps operate the ferry's ramp. A department spokesperson says the equipment now has to be inspected and repaired, then re-installed and undergo more sea trials. The department is apologizing for the inconvenience and thanking residents for their patience. They hope to have it up and running again by the end of the week. The ferry has been out of commission since January 3rd.
