RIO VISTA — Emergency mechanical repairs to the Real McCoy II ferry could delay the vessel’s return to service until 4 a.m. Wednesday.
The ferry in eastern Solano County takes Highway 84 traffic over Cache Slough and links Ryer Island with the Rio Vista area. A detour recommended by the state Department of Transportation involves using the J-Mack Ferry that carries Highway 220 traffic over Steamboat Slough on the other side of Ryer Island.
Caltrans announced Jan. 21 that the Real McCoy II ferry had been shut down for repairs to the boat’s propulsion system. At the time, it expected the ferry to reopen Feb. 1.
