MERRIMAC (WKOW) -- The Merrimac Ferry is open for the 2014 season.

The Colsac III is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week between Okee and Merrimac. The boat holds 15 vehicles, in addition to bicycles and pedestrians.

Last year, the ferry made 45,000 crossings carrying more than 270,000 vehicles.

The state Department of Transportation says the boat has two new engines this year, so it'll be more energy efficient and will produce lower emissions.
