Grafton Set to Revive Mississippi River Ferry
The (Alton) Telegraph reports that the Grafton ferry will resume next Friday, thanks to dredging efforts that cleared out river silt that kept the service from operating.
Owned by the 670-resident city of Grafton northeast of St. Louis, the ferry had served as a key shuttle for motorists trying to cross the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers.
The ferry will operate from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
