SURRY COUNTY — Jamestown-Scotland Ferry (JSF) motorists may observe an enhanced security presence on and around the JSF Thursday, May 11, from as early as 3 p.m. until as late as 7 p.m. During this time, these security measures will be incorporated into standard ferry operations and are not anticipated to cause additional travel delays.

As part of standard, day-to-day operations, motorists and passengers must consent to security screening in order to board the ferry. Motorists and passengers are always encouraged to arrive early, be patient with security officers screening vehicles, and be prepared to open trunks and enclosed containers if selected for screening. Security officers will work to make the screening process move as quickly as possible.

Two ferry vessels will be in operation as scheduled during this time and will continue to ferry motorists across the James River.

The ferry is free and operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
