Northern Neck ferries suspend service
The Merry Point Ferry in Lancaster County and the Sunnybank Ferry in Northumberland County will not operate on Friday, Sept. 22, and Saturday, Sept. 23, due to forecasted tidal flooding and high winds this weekend.
The Merry Point and Sunnybank ferries are free ferry services operated by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). They save passengers around 20 minutes of travel time when compared with the available land route.
The Merry Point Ferry crosses the western end of the Corrotoman River on Route 604.
The Sunnybank Ferry crosses the Little Wicomico River on Route 644.
