Portion of Broadway in front of Broadway Theatre to close for a week
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - Work to revamp the old Broadway Theatre in Cape Girardeau will begin soon.
Developers said Thursday, May 25 they plan to close the eastbound lane on Broadway for one week starting on May 30. This includes the area in front of the building to the corner of N. Ellis Street.
The detour will start at N. Pacific, turn left onto Themis St. and then left onto N. Ellis back to Broadway.
Doors on the building were removed on Wednesday, May 24, giving us a look at what’s left of the lobby of the theater following a fire.
Earlier in May, city leaders approved a plan to rehabilitate the building and turn it into apartments and retail space.
According to the developers plan, the first phase of the project is expected to take 16 months to finish.
