The ferry will decrease travel time between St. Charles County to Grafton by approximately 30 minutes. The ferry will be able to accommodate buses and vans and people will be allowed to get out of their vehicles during the trek across the river.

 
The Grafton Ferry is operated by the Calhoun Ferry Company which also operates the Golden Eagle Ferry in Calhoun County.
