Bill Emerson Bridge Workers Resume Game of Catch-Up
Article date: 2001

Old man winter's icy grip recently, put a deep freeze on workers building the Bill Emerson bridge in Cape Girardeau. All the ice flowing down the Mmississippi River in December--combined with the cold weather--really slowed down progress.  But workers are back at the site now--trying to make up for lost time.

The bridge is already three years behind schedule--and now you can add another three weeks to that total. Work on the Illinois side is on hold until workers on the Missouri side can catch up with their cross-river colleagues.
