Merrimac Ferry closed until further notice for repairs

MERRIMAC, Wis. — The Merrimac Ferry is closed for repairs until further notice, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation said Tuesday.

UPDATE: Merrimac Ferry reopens after being closed for repairs

In an email Tuesday afternoon, a WisDOT spokesperson said the issue appears to be related to hydraulics, adding technicians are at the scene assessing the situation and planning repairs.

WisDOT did not provide a timeline as to when the ferry could resume operations.

Drivers should instead use State Highways 60 and 78, U.S. Highway 12 and/or Interstate 90/94 until the ferry reopens.
