Greg Caffey tells The Big Z one wish is to find a way to ease traffic flow through the area, although some consideration may be given to creating a more welcoming landing area to accommodate the increasing number of riverboat cruises stopping in Alton. About $150,000 available through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the design phase, but Caffey doesn’t think they will come anywhere close to using that much.
