Monday night, the Cape Girardeau City Council approved plans to reconstruct Sloan Creek Bridge on Big Bend Road near Isle Casino.

City engineer, Casey Brunke says the columns of the bridge are in good shape, but what needs repair is what’s considered the superstructure of the bridge: the driving surface and the structure outside of the ground. She says detours will be put in place when construction begins, and local traffic will be able to use the Main Street Bridge that was closed with the casino development.
