Dock Project In Cape Girardeau Shelved

(Cape Girardeau) Cape Girardeau city officials have decided to sink a community dock project before work has even started.

A news release from the city says building a marina on the riverfront would require more community support, plus grants or private investments to make it a reality.

A feasibility study was just completed.

Out of three locations studied, the preferred one was downtown near the pedestrian gates.

Two other possible sites were the Century Casino and Red Star Access.

The cost of the project was estimated at 11-to-15 million dollars.
