Construction of the new vessel for the Keller Ferry route across the Columbia River gets under way later this month at a shipyard near Longview.

One of the most important components of the new boat is the name and the Washington State Department of Transportation is asking for your help to name it.

Go to the Keller Ferry vessel website at and click on the “Help Name the New Vessel” link.

The new vessel is scheduled to go into service spring 2013. The boat replaces the Martha S. which has served that route since 1948.
