Railroad underpasses long gone

Posted Friday, February 25, 2011, at 7:30 AM

The Cape Girardeau Northern railroad which was built by Louis Houck ran through two underpasses. One at Good Hope street, in front, and another at Morgan Oak street, behind it, no longer exist.

The railroad bed is now the site of the two-block, brick-paved Fountain Street extension from William Street to Morgan Oak near the River Campus of Southeast Missouri State University.

This picture by G.D. Fronabarger is looking south from William Street, in foreground. The date is unknown.
