According to the N.C. Department of Transportation, the Elwell Ferry is closed due to mechanical failure east of White Lake in Bladen County. Elwell Ferry Road (SR 1730), will remain open at both ends during this time. The ferry service will resume once ferry travel is deemed safe.
UPDATE: “We do not have an exact date for the opening of that ferry. We’re looking at one to two weeks,” said Tim Hass, a spokesman for the Ferry Division of the N.C. Department of Transportation. He spoke to the StarNews in September 2013.
“We are waiting on particular parts. Once those are in place, we should be ready to go,” Hass said.
The Elwell Ferry operates in Bladen County.
