Commuter Report: Ferry Service at Reduced Capacity is your source for free news and information in Williamsburg, James City & York Counties.


Update: The ferry is operating at reduced capacity.


Commuters should again avoid using the Jamestown-Scotland Ferry, as service has been suspended until high tide recedes.

The Route 17 James River Bridge can be used as an alternate route.

Ferry service has been intermittent throughout the weekend, as high waters prevent the loading ramps from safely raised or lowered.

Few roads throughout the Historic Triangle remain flooded after heavy rain hit the area last week, though a few should be avoided.

Water Street in York County has been closed because of flooding, while Back Creek and Oriana roads remain under advisories and are considered “passable with care,” according to the Virginia Department of Transportation.

In James City County, the area of South Riverside Drive – which is along the Chickahominy River – is passable with care.
