The Illinois Department of Transportation has initiated a project study to assess the feasibility of improved access across the Illinois River in west-central Illinois. The overall study area includes Scott, Pike, Calhoun, and Greene Counties between I-72 and IL Route 108. The study will be focused on potential measures to maintain access, reduce operations costs, reduce maintenance costs and improve safety for current and future users of the Florence Bridge crossing and the Kampsville Ferry crossing. Affected users include both highway and river traffic, including barge and recreational traffic.
