The Cherry Branch-Minnesott Beach state ferry will be closed Tuesday, and plans to reopen Wednesday afternoon, if the weather cooperates.
Three ramps used by the ferry are being resurfaced with non-skid paint. Ferry operations will stop after the 9:45 a.m. run Tuesday, and tentative plans have it resuming on 11:15 p.m. on Wednesday.
The state says it takes 21 hours for the painting to take place and then dry property.
Travelers are urged to call the Cherry Branch operations at 1-800-339-9156 or 1-252-447-1055 for updated information.
