Update: Work has been delayed on the project below. Due to inclement weather, Perkins Contracting will begin the work for AT&T on Aug. 22. Detours will begin at that time.
Starting on Aug. 15, Perkins Contracting will begin rebuilding two underground manholes for AT&T on Broadway between Lorimier and Spanish streets in Cape Girardeau. Estimated time to project completion is three to four weeks, depending on weather or unforeseen delays.
Local traffic only access will be available for businesses on the affected block. For patrons accessing downtown businesses, which will remain open during the project, detours will be available. Parking will only be affected in the work zone where equipment will be in use.
As always, drivers are asked to use caution in work zones.
