DelDOT: Woodland Ferry out of service until summer

WOODLAND – Due to additional repairs of the ferry, the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) announced Tuesday that the Woodland Ferry will be out-of-service until this summer.

Delaware’s Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that the Woodland Ferry will be out of service until this summer due to repairs.

In a release sent Tuesday morning, DelDOT stated, “We understand that the loss of the ferry service is an inconvenience to residents. The goal of the Department is to have the ferry run safely without further interruption for the next five years.”

When in service, the ferry provides transportation across the Nanticoke River for vehicle and foot passengers, linking Laurel/Bethel and Seaford/Blades.

The current vessel, the Tina Fallon, was christened in October 2008. It is named in tribute to long-serving Seaford-area State Rep. Tina Fallon, who served in the General Assembly from 1978-2006. Ms. Fallon died in January 2011.
