To help handle the large volume of

cars and trucks waiting for the ferry

on the Illinois side, we've added

additional lanes to allow more cars

to enter the waiting area so they

don't block traffic on the street.

When entering the Illinois ferry

landing area please follow the red

arrows in the diagram.

The MO ferry landing is reached by taking MO Route 94 from St. Charles or from US Route 67 to the Grafton Ferry Road.
