CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

A section of West End Boulevard south of Highway 74 in Cape Girardeau that's been closed since February will reopen to traffic Thursday, December 17th, 2015.

Construction crews have finished replacing the street, and building sidewalks on West End Boulevard from Highway 74 to Linden Street. 

Workers also constructed sidewalks north of highway 74 and extending them to Jefferson Street.

The project is part of Transportation Trust Fund 4, which voters approved in 2010.

The Cape Girardeau City Council awarded the construction contract in February.

The entire project cost about $1.9 million.

The road will be back open for traffic after a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2:30 p.m.
