PLAQUEMINE - The ferry between Plaquemine and Sunshine is out of service while repairs are being made.

A spokesperson for the Department of Transportation and Development says a part on one of the vessel's generators must be replaced.

Crews haven't been able to find one locally and are currently working to locate one and have it delivered as soon as possible. At this time, DOTD does not have an estimated return to service date and time.

Before traveling, drivers can call the Toll-Free Ferry Information line at 1-888-613-3779 for the status of the ferry, or visit the "Ferry Status" page on the right-hand side of the DOTD Web site.

Drivers can also access updates on the ferry through Twitter by visiting http://twitter.com/PlaquemineFerry. Drivers can receive automatic updates on the ferry's status via Twitter or text.
