White Castle ferry fails to sell
BATON ROUGE - The 62-year-old ferry that once traveled between White Castle and Carville could be sold for scrap after the state failed to attract a minimum bid at auction.
The Jindal administration wanted at least $200,000 for the White Castle ferry. The highest bid over the weekend was $45,000.
Department of Transportation and Development Secretary Sherri LeBas said the state may disassemble the boat and sell it for parts, salvage parts for other state-owned ferries or put it up for auction again.
Officials shut down the ferry in June, saying it would save the state $1.3 million a year.
