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:

Cape Girardeau will receive more than $201,000 from the Missouri Department of Transportation for new sidewalks along Independence Street. . . .

It laid out plans for sidewalks along Independence Street from Gordonville Road to where the Cape LaCroix Creek passes under Independence.

The sidewalk would make it easier for pedestrians to walk from the newly installed roundabout at the intersection of Gordonville Road and Independence Street to the Cape LaCroix Recreation Trail.

MoBikeFed comment: Cape Girardeau, like many communities across Missouri, is working to complete and extend its sidewalk network.

Several years ago, MoDOT worked with communities all across Missouri to systematically identify sidewalk gaps and repairs needed. These local sidewalk assessments have focused needed attention and funding on local sidewalk priorities, like those in Cape Girardeau.
