The overall study area includes Scott, Pike, Calhoun, and Greene Counties. 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.
