St. Johns River Ferry delays shutdown

The St. Johns River Ferry has delayed the dates that it will be suspended for maintenance.

The ferry, which connects Mayport Village and Fort George Island, will shut down Jan. 25 to May 2. That’s about 10 days later than originally planned.

JTA said the delay results from supply chain issues for the vessel’s components.

The U.S. Coast Guard requires the maintenance every two to three years to ensure the ferry remains in good repair.

While the ferry is out of service, JTA says it will make other improvements to improve service. When the work is done, ferry riders will have improved points of entry and new dynamic information signs.
