Poor Martha S. It takes a lot more to keep her going than it used to. She’s 62 years old though, so what do you expect.
Martha S. is the Keller ferry vessel that shuttles drivers across Lake Roosevelt. And she’ll be out of commission for up to a month starting next Monday, June 14, for inspections and repairs. Work should be completed no later than July 16.
If you use the ferry, you’re going to have to find another way across the Columbia River. The nearest crossings are downstream at Grand Coulee Dam or upstream via the Gifford/Inchelium ferry.
