**The height of the river is determined by information on a county gauge that is read by county ferry operators and sent to the National Weather Service (NWS).
***Operating hours are shortened for the safety of the travelling public, our ferry workers and the ferry itself.  While we operate the ferry after dark during parts of the year, we want to limit operating in darkness during the inclement weather season when the river runs high with stronger currents and more debris.
