Ice has closed another ferry in the Riverbend. The Illinois Department of Transportation reports the Brussels Ferry was closed this morning at 5:00 due to ice accumulation in the Illinois River. The Kampsville Ferry closed on Monday also due to the ice and both will remain closed until it is safe for the boats to reopen. Motorists should consider the Hardin Bridge for access to Calhoun County during this period.
IDOT says advance signage has been utilized to inform travelers of the closure. Travelers are advised to consider alternate routes and allow additional time for travel around this area.
