Valley View Ferry

RICHMOND, Ky.-- A ferry in central Kentucky plans to stop weekend service and reduce hours on weekdays due to a shortage of qualified captains.

The Richmond Register reports the reduced hours for the Valley View Ferry will begin on June 29. The ferry travels between Madison, Fayette and Jessamine counties.

The announcement was made Thursday by Valley View Ferry Authority officials Roger Barger and George Dean. They said one of the ferry's two captains is leaving on June 29.
