The Harsens Island ferry is slated to transport pedestrians on Thursday as crews work to repair a damaged dock, officials said.

The ferry is scheduled to make trips at 8 a.m., noon, 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Thursday for foot traffic only and not riders' vehicles, Clayton Township police confirmed. 

An estimate on completion for the dock repairs was not available, police said.

Police said crews were fixing an unknown issue with the dock when they struck a power line that fell, landing on top of a pickup truck near the St. Clair River.
