MADISON, IN (WAVE) – A free passenger ferry service began Monday to cross the Ohio River.

During the last two weeks of the Milton-Madison Bridge closure, Rockin' Thunder Boats will load up every Monday through Friday at the Madison boat ramp, taking you to Milton, Kentucky. The service runs 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

According to the boat company, the first trip of the day will depart Madison promptly at 7 a.m. from the public boat ramp. They ask you to arrive a few minutes early to be given safety instructions and a life jacket. For your safety, please wear non-skid shoes.

Rides will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis throughout the day, as much as needed.
