Balfour Ferry Terminal OPEN HOUSE
June 15, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Beginning June 15, residents will have an opportunity to review the options and provide their feedback. An open house is scheduled that day at the Redfish elementary school gym from 5 to 8 p.m. An online survey will also be available until July 6 at gov.bc.ca/balfourterminal.
Ferry service on Kootenay Lake currently operates between Balfour on the west side and Kootenay Bay on the east side. The nine-kilometre crossing takes about 35 minutes and boasts of being the longest free ferry ride in the world. The MV Osprey 2000 provides year-round service with the MVBalfour supplementing the summer service.
The Ministry of Transportation will hold an open house on June 15 to gather feedback on the possibility of moving the Balfour ferry terminal.
