Cape Girardeau has addressed two major storm water problems, and plans are in the works to tackle another drainage issue. A major storm water project at Arena Park has been completed while another, along Hopper Road, is nearly finished. A project addressing frequent flooding on Good Hope Street in the area of Christine Street and Plaza Way is in the design stage. This project is expected to cost about $3.5 million and expected to start next year. All of the projects are among several that are being funded with money from a parks/storm water tax, which voters extended in 2018. You can read more in the Southeast Missourian.
