White Castle ferry out of service 4-6 weeks

WHITE CASTLE, La. - State officials say the White Castle ferry is expected to be out of service another 4-6 weeks.

The state Department of Transportation and development said repairs to the vessel's propeller shaft were expected to be completed by mid-September. But delays in dry docking, the discovery of the need for additional repairs and the landfall of Hurricane Isaac have pushed the estimated return of the ferry to mid-to-late October.

The ferry crosses the Mississippi River between White Castle and Geismar, upriver from New Orleans.
