Merchants Railroad Bridge; Work barges continue excavating around both left and right descending navigation piers and the right descending pier of the center span. Work barges should not encroach more than 50 feet into the navigation channel, at any time. For work barge locations, mariners are encouraged to contact the onsite work boat M/V KATHERINE OHARA via VHF-FM Channel 6 or 16 or by phone at (217) 248-9077.

The following areas are in the high water watch phase IAW the Western Rivers WAP Annex:

Pool 15 (Mile 493.2 – Mile 482.9),

Pool 17 (Mile 457.1 – Mile 437.1),

Pool 18 (Mile 437.0 – Mile 410.5),

Pool 20 (Mile 364.1 – Mile 343.2),

Pool 22 (Mile 324.8 – Mile 301.2),

Pool 25 (Mile 273.3 – Mile 241.4) and

Pool 26 (Mile 241.1 – Mile 200.5).

Down-streaming operations are not recommended unless the vessel is equal to or greater than 75 feet in length and the vessel has a minimum of 1,800 h.p. Towboat operators should use caution, minimize wake where possible, and be experienced in high water operations. Mariners should remain vigilant to an increase in debris in the water and maneuver appropriately. Be aware that a buildup of debris in fleeting areas may have occurred and take appropriate action to prevent any breakaways from occurring. Use caution in all passing and meeting situations and be mindful of all charted bridge navigational clearances. Buoys may have been dragged off station so remain cautious while transiting. Towing vessels are advised to favor the center of the channel and proceed at their slowest safe operating speed, based on prevailing conditions, to minimize wake damage to personal property. Down-streaming operations are not recommended.



The following areas are in the high water watch phase IAW the Western Rivers WAP Annex:

Zone 6 Copperas (Mile 145.5 – Mile 129.0),

Zone 5 Havana (Mile 128.9 – Mile 102.0),

Zone 4 Beardstown (Mile 101.9 – Mile 80.3),

Zone 3 Meredosia (Mile 80.2 – Mile 50.0),

Zone 2 Hardin (Mile 49.9 – Mile 10.0) and

Zone 1 Grafton (Mile 9.0 – Mile 0.0). High water and drift potential may be encountered in this area. Mariners are advised to minimize wake and exercise caution. Avoid laying up on saturated levees. Mariners should be experienced in high water conditions and avoid down-streaming operations if possible. Mariners should remain vigilant to an increase in debris and maneuver appropriately. Be aware that a buildup of debris in fleeting areas may have occurred and take appropriate actions to prevent breakaways. Exercise caution in all meeting and overtaking situations, as swift currents may be present. Navigational buoys may have been dragged off station, so remain cautious while transiting.


The following areas are in the high water watch phase IAW the Western Rivers WAP Annex:

Jefferson Reach (Mile 200.0 – Mile 100.0) and

Washington Reach (Mile 100.0 – Mile 0.0).

Recreational vessel traffic is highly discouraged. Towboat operators should exercise caution, minimize wake where possible and be experienced in high water operations as extreme high water and drift may be experienced. Exercise caution when down-streaming, be aware of bridge clearances prior to transit and favor the center of the channel. Mariners should pre-identify suitable lay-up areas in the event of a river closure and avoid laying up on levees. Fleeting areas should have a towboat attend fleets at all times and have a breakaway plan in place. Aids to navigation may have been dragged off station, damaged or destroyed, so remain cautious while transiting.

424 Broadway, Alton, IL



As everyone is aware, Governor Pritzker has issued an order that all Bars & Restaurants must discontinue dine in services, effective 3/17/2020 through a minimum of 3/30/2020. At this time, Bluff City Grill will remain closed without curbside or delivery services. We are working with our employees to assist them in this difficult time in as many ways as we can. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause any of our valued patrons. We plan to take this down time to ensure all our staff members are taking the necessary precautions to help slow/stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In the meantime, we are taking on a few projects & using this time to be productive to complete a few projects to improve our facility. If the ban continues further than 3/30/2020 we will revisit the idea of curbside services & keep everyone informed on that decision. We truly appreciate everyone’s support during this trying time & ask everyone to come together as a community. Please support our community’s small businesses & practice the guidelines the CDC & WHO has recommended to help end this pandemic. Stay Safe & Stay Healthy!

Calhoun Ferry Company


The Golden Eagle Ferry is OPEN


Calhoun Ferry Company’s priority is the health and safety of our crew and passengers.
We received a call today from the U.S. Coast Guard advising us that all passengers will be required to stay in their vehicles when crossing the ferry. This is in response to the restrictions placed on gatherings of 10 or more people. This will remain in effect until the restrictions are lifted.
We are cleaning and disinfecting all crew areas and all ferry passes as we receive them.
Starting tomorrow 03/21/2020 we will be reducing our hours to eliminate the late night shift on Friday and Saturday. This will remain in effect until the restrictions are lifted. Hours will be Monday through Saturday 5am to 9pm and Sunday 8am to 9pm.
We will all get through this together by working together for a better tomorrow. Stay safe!
Thank You,
The Calhoun Ferry Company

St. Charles Boat & Motor update:
Due to the unprecedented time that the country is experiencing, we are implementing some additions to our normal routine:
At this time, we remain open for business, operating with a small staff. For the safety of our customers, our staff, and our families, in addition to our normal operations, we are offering some alternative means of interacting with us as well – for both purchasing products (from parts to a new boat) and for your service needs.
If you’d like to shop any new or used inventory with us with minimized social interaction, we can schedule individual appointments or send you a virtual video tour of a unit. You can always shop our inventory on our website as well, at www.stcharlesboat.com. We currently have some huge discounts on our in stock inventory! If you’re interested in a private appointment, please e-mail us at zeke@stcharlesboat.com or you can call us at 636-947-0106 during normal business hours.
For your service needs, we can schedule a touchless drop off and pick-up with you. For touchless drop off or pick-up, e-mail Jerry at jerry@stcharlesboat.com or Zeke at zeke@stcharlesboat.com for scheduling and instructions.
We realize that this too will pass and we can return to a more normal routine, which means getting back to boating for many of us!
We will keep our customer’s updated by posting on our website and Facebook page.

Hi Bill,
They are diligently working to get things in order. The have been working long hours trying to get the building in shape, lots of painting and cleaning. It is going to happen, however they are a bit behind because of Illinois paperwork. I expect an opening sometime in March. They are keeping the name "Fat Boys".
