MoDOT to Hold Public Meeting to Discuss Route K Corridor in Cape Girardeau County 

The Missouri Department of Transportation will hold a public meeting from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, April 18 to discuss plans to improve the Route K corridor in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The meeting will be held at Notre Dame High School, located at 265 Notre Dame Dr. in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  A traffic study was completed in 2022 that looked at Route K from County Road 319 to 0.2 miles east of County Road 317. The proposed project includes widening the roadway, adding a center turn lane and constructing a roundabout at Notre Dame Drive.   Construction could begin as early as spring 2026, with completion anticipated by fall 2026. It is anticipated the route would remain open throughout all phases of construction, with minor lane shifts under flagger control.  The public meeting will be open house style, and visitors can stop-by anytime between 4 and 6 p.m. to discuss the details of the project with the project team.  For more information, please contact Project Manager Tim Pickett at (573) 472-9003, Area Engineer Chris Crocker at (573) 380-1658 or MoDOT’s Customer Service Center toll-free at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (1-888-275-6636).
