Longtime ferry back open after hiatus
Mon, 29 Jul 2013 12:47:15 GMT —
After a nearly three-year hiatus, the ferry in Grafton is running again.
The city-owned ferry connects Illinois' Jersey County to Missouri's St. Charles County.
Using the ferry cuts about 30 minutes of time off a commute.
Ferry service was halted because of silt collecting along the river bottom.
Then dredging efforts were postponed because of flooding.
