Canby Ferry Will Close for Six Weeks for Maintenance, Inspection

The Canby Ferry, officially known as the M.J. Lee, is expected to be closed for six weeks for repairs and maintenance.

The ferry will be closed from April 18 to May 27 to replace the overhead power transmission line and paint the boat, according to a release from Clackamas County, which owns and operates the vessel.

The boat will also undergo a mandatory Coast Guard inspection. The ferry will reopen after maintenance is complete.

The Canby Ferry crosses the Willamette River between Canby and Wilsonville. The ferry runs 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week except on major holidays and when the water level rises to 70 feet or higher, or during inclement weather.

Each day, the ferry pauses service from 1 to 1:30 p.m. for a staff lunch break.
