Cape Girardeau Officials to Open Broadway Soon

Cape Girardeau city officials are looking to open up a section of Broadway St. as soon as possible.  Today they put t up fencing around the front of the condemned building that caught fire a couple weeks ago near the corner of Broadway and Ellis streets. They are working with the property owner to get the building secured and open Broadway back up. They’ve also taken measures to secure an emergency order from the city’s building supervisor which would give the city the ability to do the work themselves if they don’t see significant progress from the property owner soon. Officials are looking to have a contractor take down the top leaning part at the least, a section that has them worried about falling before they open the road back up.
