Hickman-Dorena Ferry

The Dorena–Hickman Ferry is a ferry that crosses the Mississippi River between Dorena, Missouri and Hickman, Kentucky.  This boat takes vehicular traffic across the river seven days a week during daylight hours.
It provides the only direct road connection between Missouri and Kentucky; however, they are indirectly connected at Cairo, Illinois via U.S. 60 & U.S. 62 over the Cairo Mississippi River Bridge and the Cairo Ohio River Bridge.  ​
