SUNNY BANK FERRY RETURNS TO SERVICE FRIDAY, APRIL 17
Maintenance work on vessel and vehicle ramp upgrade is complete

FREDERICKSBURG—Service on the Sunny Bank Ferry in Northumberland County will resume on Friday, April 17.

 

The ferry was taken out of service in January 2015 for planned maintenance work. The vessel was removed from the water for painting and rehabilitation. A new vehicle ramp was installed, making it easier to adjust the ramp height at low and high tide.

Sunny Bank Ferry is located on Route 644 in Northumberland County, and crosses the Little Wicomico River.

More information about the Sunny Bank Ferry, including hours of operation, is available on www.VirginiaDOT.org:
