2015 Asphalt Overlay Program
Several portions of Cape Girardeau’s streets are undergoing asphalt overlay and/or concrete milling during the month of August. The work is part of the 2015 Asphalt Overlay Program, which includes yearly asphalt resurfacing made possible by the Transportation Trust Fund (TTF) program, graciously renewed by voters last week. This program allows numerous areas of town to undergo repairs on a regular basis.
