Pedestrian Bridge Installation

Workers install the new pedestrian bridge over LaCroix Creek, Wednesday, March 27, 2013. The bridge provides additional access to Cape LaCroix Trail from behind The Pasta House Co. The 120-foot bridge was made by Contech Engineered Solutions in Fort Payne, Ala. and shipped to Cape Girardeau in two sections. The self-weathering steal bridge with hard wood decking is five ton rated, and weighs 44,500 pounds. The bridge is part of Missouri Department of Transportation's project that includes a multimodal trail along Route K and signal improvements along Route K and Highway 74.
