Baton Rouge, La — If you depend on the White Castle ferry to get across the river, and thought you still had time to make other travel plans, think again.
It appears as though White Castle to Plaquemine ferry service will be ending even before the end of the month now.
DOTD officials announced that it will close permanently on June 21 because they just don't have enough licensed staff to operate it anymore.
After Friday, motorists who want to cross the river will have to find an alternate route. The nearest option is the ferry service located in Plaquemine.
