How do you get to work at the Ameren Missouri Power Plant in Portage Des Sioux if the roads to the plant are flooded?  You take the bus...on a ferry! 

The employees are using this temporary mode of travel since the normal route to the plant, Highway 94, is flooded by the Mississippi River.  The Ameren employees park in Alton, then are taken across the river on the bus, on a ferry.

However, if they live in Missouri, their trip home takes a bit longer since the Clark Bridge at Alton is one-way only into the city due to the flooding.  Most will travel south to Route 3 and I-270 at back into Missouri.
