The Illinois Department of Transportation announced the closure of the Kampsville Ferry due to ice accumulation in the Illinois River.
This closure will be in effect until river conditions improve to allow for the safe operation of the ferry service. Motorists should consider the Hardin Bridge for access to Calhoun County during this period.
The Brussels Ferry remains open at this time; however, ice has started to accumulate in the river within the crossing area. IDOT officials say they will make every effort to continue ferry operations at the Brussels Ferry - provided established safety standards can continue to be met for ongoing service.
