The AC Trans Am route #9 between Farmington, MO and Chester, Ill crosses a long narrow two lane
bridge over the Mississippi River which often has heavy truck traffic. Much of the route on to Farmington is along narrow and shoulder less two lane MO county roads which pass thru the very hilly Ozark winemaking region that draws moderate wine taster traffic on the weekends.
A less hazardous optional route is Hwy 32 between Ste. Genevieve and Farmington, cross the Mississippi on the ferry at Ste. Genevieve, from Modoc go south on very low traffic side roads
which avoid Hwy 3 in Ill, and parallel the river on to Chester.
