MARBLE HILL, Mo. -- The public will have a chance Thursday to offer input on upcoming roadwork in Bollinger and Cape Girardeau counties.
Scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m. at Woodland Elementary School in Marble Hill, the meeting will provide information on bridge replacement and road improvements on Highway 34 and several other roads, according to a news release from the Missouri Department of Transportation.
