Real McCoy II Ferry and J-Mack Ferry-Closed
Until Further Notice

SOLANO COUNTY– The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has temporarily suspended service of the Real McCoy Ferry on State Route 84 (SR-84) and the J-Mack Ferry on State Route 220 (SR-220) due to high water and heavy current caused by this week’s storms and runoff in the Delta region.
Service on the J-Mack ferry was suspended on Tuesday, January 10. Service on the Real McCoy ferry was suspended at approximately 8:30AM Thursday, January 12.
Both ferries will be returned to service when the current and water levels recede. Caltrans will make an announcement once estimated return times are determined.
During the closure of the Real McCoy and J-Mack ferries, motorists are advised to use the Miner’s Slough Bridge on SR-84 as a detour when traveling between Ryer Island and Sacramento and Solano Counties.
