NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — After months of work, the Southport-Fort Fisher ferry is expected to reopen next month.
Work to repair the ferry’s aging ramp system has been sporadically happening since January.
According to a ferry spokesperson, the contractor on the ramp has been delayed by rain this month, but is on track to have the system operational by the middle of next month.
The $3 million project is to add an updated hydraulic ramp system.
This new system promises to be smoother and less prone to accidental failures.
