PLAQUEMINE - The Plaquemine ferry is scheduled to return to service Monday after a three-week lapse, the state Department of Transportation and Development announced Thursday.

The Plaquemine landing was closed on May 11 because of the Mississippi River’s high water levels, according to a DOTD news release.

The ferry normally operates between 5 a.m. and 9 p.m. seven days a week. Call 1-888-613-3779 to check the status of the ferry or receive updates via Twitter at
