Access to Cape Girardeau Bridge to Re-open on Friday

Jul 25, 2019

It's now official... traveling from southern Illinois to Cape Girardeau and vice versa is about to get much more convenient.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says it will re-open Route 3 near McClure and Route 146 to East Cape Girardeau Friday afternoon at 2 p.m.

That stretch of road closed June 21st after high water on the roadways became too deep for safe passage.

IDOT says Route 3 will remain closed south of the Intersection with Route 146 to Gale until the floodwaters recede from the area.
