White Castle Ferry closes

The White Castle Ferry made its last run Friday.

DOTD says closing the ferry will save the state more than $1 million each year.

With the ferry closing, commuters will have a much longer drive.

"With me going through Donaldsonville all week, now you're looking at a tank and a quarter, a tank and a half; $80 to $100 a week," said Gary Templet.

DOTD also plans to shut down the Edgard/Reserve Ferry for good next Friday, which could also save the state $1 million per year.
