By From page A3 | January 19, 2014

RIO VISTA — Two ferries that serve Ryer Island in eastern Solano County on state highways will be closed on separate nights this coming week for maintenance work.

The Real McCoy II is scheduled to be closed from 10 p.m. Tuesday until 4 a.m. Wednesday, a state Department of Transportation news release said. The ferry carries traffic on Highway 84 over Cache Slough at the western end of Ryer Island.

During the service interruption, motorists can use Highway 160 and the J-Mack Ferry along Highway 220 over Steamboat Slough to reach the eastern end of Ryer Island, Caltrans advised.

The J-Mack Ferry along Highway 220 is scheduled to be closed from 9 p.m. Wednesday until 5 a.m. Thursday. Motorists can reach Ryer Island using the Real McCoy ferry during the closure.

Ryer Island is located in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, 2 miles north of Rio Vista.
