CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Work on a pedestrian bridge will begin on Thursday, Oct. 15.
The bridge will connect the northern end of the Riverwalk Trail to the Missouri Department of Conservation Red Star boat access area.
According to the City of Cape Girardeau, work is expected to last about two months, subject to weather and high river level delays.
No pedestrian or bicycle access will be allowed in the construction zone.
The walkway will be closed north of the Broadway flood wall gate. Pedestrian access to the southern portions of the Riverwalk will still be available during construction.
This addition is phase five of the Riverwalk Project. For more information on the project, you can click here.
