NEW ORLEANS, La. – Due to severe winter weather, the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development announces that the Algiers-to-Canal Street ferry service has been suspended due to ice formation on the vessel and passenger walks.

The vessel made its final trips from Algiers Point at 2:45 p.m. and from Canal at 3 p.m. Earlier today, roadways leading to the Chalmette ferry landing developed ice because of freezing temperatures and precipitation causing service to be suspended.
