Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

A recently unveiled regional plan envisions a biking/pedestrian trail that would connect Cape Girardeau and Jackson.

The Southeast Metropolitan Planning Organization (SEMPO) is seeking public input on the 161-page document.

The North Jackson-Cape Trail would extend 6.25 miles and cost an estimated $5 million to $8.75 million, the plan states.

It would create an extension of Cape LaCroix Trail and require reconstruction of the County Road 306 overpass that spans Interstate 55, according to the plan.

As envisioned, the trail would provide access through an area that is expected to see “high growth” in the future.

It is just one of 26 trail and bicycle-lane projects the regional planning organization has proposed.
