Delays at Liard River ferry crossing

FORT SIMPSON (October 19, 2015) – The Department of Transportation is advising of delays at the Liard River crossing near Fort Simpson.

The Lafferty Ferry will be operating normal hours (8:00  a.m. to 11:45 p.m.), but multi-trailer transport trucks will be required to split and be transported as single tractor trailer units.

Travellers will be required to back onto the ferry to facilitate the offloading process.

These delays are caused by one of the ferry’s engines suffering mechanical problems. The repairs will be completed in a safe and timely manner.
