Bay Of St. Louis Ferry Project Moving Forward

A proposed ferry boat service between Bay St. Louis and Henderson Point is still in the research stage.

The Department of Marine Resources is in the process of conducting a water depth study. Scientists hope to determine whether the water is deep enough in the Bay of St. Louis to support the weight of a ferry boat loaded with cars.

While that work is underway, the State Department of Transportation is searching for a landing site on the Henderson Point side. The foot of Washington Street in Bay St. Louis has already been deemed a likely landing site in the Bay.
