Canby Ferry back in service after six months of major maintenance

The Canby Ferry, which was out of service for major maintenance since January 2013, returned to service on schedule at 6:45 a.m., Friday, July 19.

The ferry had major repairs/retrofitting work done in dry dock in Portland over the past six months to reduce electricity usage, eliminate the potential of an environmentally-damaging oil spill, and ensure continued safe and reliable transportation. The repairs were paid by a $1.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Canby Ferry is once again crossing the Willamette River between Canby and Wilsonville seven days a week except on major holidays and when the water level rises to 70 feet or higher. The crossing fare is $4 for cars and pick-up trucks, $8 for vehicles with trailers, and $2 for motorcycles, bicycles and pedestrians.
