IDOT Photo: Brussels FerryThe Illinois Department of Transportation has reopened two local ferries.  The Kampsville Ferry opened on Saturday and the Brussels Ferry opened yesterday.  Ice flow on the Illinois River had closed the vessels for several weeks, but with the warmer weather, the amount of ice has decreased enabling the ferries to re-open.

IDOT reminds motorists that with the last of the major ice flows coming downstream, the status could change depending on river conditions over the next few weeks as spring approaches and ice melt continues.
