RYER ISLAND — The J-Mack ferry on Ryer Island is scheduled to reopen at noon Saturday.
It closed Wednesday night after the cable that guides the ferry across Steamboat Slough snapped during heavy currents, carrying storm debris. The ferry is run by the state Department of Transportation along Highway 220 between rural Ryer Island in eastern Solano County and Grand Island in western Sacramento County.
Caltrans also runs the Real McCoy II ferry on Highway 84 north of Rio Vista across Cache Slough to Ryer Island. It advises travelers to take the Real McCoy ferry while the J-Mack ferry is closed.
