Work began Wednesday on a project to replace eight additional crosswalks in downtown Cape Girardeau with red-colored concrete.

Crosswalks at the intersections of Spanish and Independence streets and Main and Independence streets have been added to the list of nine crosswalks being constructed. The project should last about six weeks, weather permitting.

The intersections will be open to at least one lane of traffic while work is underway. Signs will direct traffic around the construction area, and motorists are asked to use caution.

Downtown businesses are open during the construction. Parking is available both on-street and in lots next to Broadway and Spanish, Water and Main streets. Signs will be placed around the work zones noting that businesses are open and parking is available.
