The City of Cape Girardeau, in partnership with contractors and the Missouri Departments of Conservation and Transportation, recently added a pedestrian bridge over Sloan Creek marking completion of several additions to the popular Riverfront Trail in downtown Cape Girardeau.

Improvements include trail extension, LED upgrades in the north lights, new lights in the south, and widened “pinch points” along the trail. With the new trail extension to the south, the whole trail now runs 6,800-feet (just over a mile) from the MDC Red Star River Access in the north along the length of the riverwall to the south. The public can now access the Riverfront Park Trail from Red Star, and at both the Themis and Broadway flood gates along the river wall.

Most of the $1+ Million project was made possible by grant funding via the Missouri Department of Transportation and less than $70,000 from the Parks & Recreation and Stormwater sales tax of 2008.

Join us to celebrate!
