Downtown Road Work on Aquamsi Street Begins July 10

Starting Wednesday, July 10, contractor Nip Kelley Construction will begin road work on Aquamsi Street from William to Merriwether in downtown Cape Girardeau.

The small, affected section of Aquamsi Street borders Murtaugh Park. Aquamsi is being removed, thereby expanding Murtaugh Park and the area near the Red House Interpretive Center.

Murtaugh Park is currently a small green space (0.2 acres) located on a median across from the Old St. Vincent’s Catholic Church and the Red House Interpretive Center in historic downtown Cape Girardeau. There is a memorial plaque at the park.

Road work signage is already posted around the area. Motorists are asked to use caution around this, and all, work zones.

For more information, please contact the City of Cape Girardeau Development Services Department at 573-339-6327.
