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.
