The roads are also open, according to Alton Regional Convention and Visitor’s Bureau spokesman Jong Cambron.

He says the Grafton Ferry opening has been delayed for at least one more week. He says you can also get to Grafton from the north, as Illinois Route 100 is open all the way to Route 96 in Kampsville.
