COLLINSVILLE — The Illinois Department of Transportation reopened the Brussels Ferry Sunday as ice floes continue to subside on the Illinois River.
The ferry provides service across the Illinois River between Illinois 100 and Calhoun County Highway 1. Occasional interruptions in service may be encountered as the last of the ice upstream passes through the main crossing area. Based on the amount of remaining ice and warmer temperatures, any delay would be temporary and more likely occur overnight when visibility is reduced. The department appreciates the patience of affected motorists.
The Kampsville Ferry returned to full service Saturday afternoon. The Kampsville Ferry and the Joe Page Bridge in Hardin are fully operational and also provide access to Calhoun County.
