Starting Saturday, the Valley View Ferry will be out of service for repairs for about two weeks.
The Valley View Ferry Authority announced the closure Thursday.
Never miss a local story.
The small ferry at the end of Tates Creek Road carries vehicles across the Kentucky River between Jessamine and Madison counties. It traces its beginnings to 1785 -- seven years before Kentucky entered the union.
The nearest bridges across the river are the Interstate 75 bridge and the U.S. 25 bridge, both at Clays Ferry.
