Keller Ferry north shore terminal relocation scheduled for today

— Due to rising river levels, the Keller Ferry north shore terminal is being moved from the low water ramp to the regular ramp today.

The process began at about 9 a.m. and can take five hours to complete, Washington State Ferries officials said. During this work, motorists are advised to use alternate state routes for their travels.

The terminal is moved to the low-water ramp in the Sanpoil River arm when Lake Roosevelt water levels are 1,238 feet or lower.

As water levels rise toward summer elevation (1,290 feet), the terminal will be brought back to the normal north shore location, officials said.

The floating terminal is tied to the ferry vessel and towed between the ramps.
