NEW ORLEANS -- The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development says the route will now be out of service until further notice.

Late Monday afternoon, the boat was moved to the lower Algiers/Chalmette route. After that the ferry had a mechanical failure.

There are no backup boats.

The Algiers/Canal Ferry will not be able to resume until after the other boat is fixed.
