Route 146 at E. Cape Girardeau Closed to Local Traffic

Jul 3, 2019

The Mayor of East Cape Girardeau is issuing another voluntary evacuation order for all residents of the village.

Joe Aden says this latest order is due to IDOT closing Route 146 between East Cape and the Bill Emerson Memorial Bridge to all local traffic.

Only emergency vehicles, government vehicles, and emergency personnel will be allowed access.

Aden issued a similar order last week as seep water rose and surrounded homes.

For those evacuating, the American Red Cross has a shelter open at Zion United Methodist Church in Cape Girardeau.
