High water and gusty winds on the Neuse River have forced the suspension of one ferry route for part of Tuesday.
The Cherry Branch-Minnesott Beach ferry was shut down as of 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. It reopened shortly after 4:00 p.m.
The D.O.T. said the ferries could not safely load and off-load vehicles because of the high gusting northeast winds and high water on the Neuse.
