Storm Drain Pipe Work Closing Portion of Broadway, Beginning Oct. 26

UPDATE: Changes in the timeline for this project have pushed back the tentative starting date to Oct. 27. The project was originally slated to begin Oct. 19. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Storm drain pipe liner installation will close a portion of Broadway just east of Main Street in Cape Girardeau next week. This affects traffic access of Water Street from Broadway, as well.
Project work by City contractor SAK Construction begins about 9 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 26 and should be complete in about 18 hours, weather permitting. Work will be continuous until complete to minimize disruptions. Detours will be marked for drivers in the area around the work zone. As always, drivers are asked to use caution in the area.
This is segment two of a two-segment process. During the project, SAK will install a cured in place liner in the 42-inch storm drain pipe at this location. Work is related to the City’s maintenance responsibility along the floodwall and its components. The drain being lined serves the area along and around the eastern end of Broadway, and it drains into the Mississippi River. Stage one of this project occurred last month.
