SOLANO COUNTY – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has scheduled a long-term closure of the Real McCoy Ferry in the Delta starting Monday, November 30 until February 2016 for mandatory repairs and inspections.
In collaboration with the U.S. Coast Guards’ mandated dry dock inspection of the Real McCoy Ferry, the vessel will be closed to the traveling public beginning November 30. The ferry is scheduled to be returned to service by February 2016.
Caltrans will make an announcement once more detailed information regarding the times of the closure are available.
During that time, the ferry will be moved to a dry dock facility for the U.S. Coast Guard inspection.
The Real McCoy, also known as the Cache Slough Ferry, provides around the clock service on State Route 84 between Rio Vista and Ryer Island.
During the closure, motorists are advised to use the J-Mack Ferry, also known as the Steamboat Slough Ferry along Highway 220.
