FERRY REOPENS


On a Foggy Morning History was made as the River Ferry Between Houston and Benton County was Re-opened.The ferry will hold 22 passengers, plus the crew members. The barge is capable of transporting six full size light vehicle trucks and two compact cars, or eight medium size cars, or one empty tractor trailer. The hours of operation are:
Monday – Friday 5:30 am to 6:00 pm
Saturday and Sunday 6:00 am to 6:00 pm
Fees vary according to size and type of vehicle, as set forth in Tennessee Code Annotated 54-13-317. For residents of Henry, Benton, Stewart and Houston Counties, the fee will be set at $.75 per day. What we found of most intrest was the 11 mile extension of Hy 147, which work will start in the spring of next year tying it into Hy 69 and making the landing on the Benton County side a modern landing instead of the county road it is now this should greatly increase the traffic through the area.
