The Southeast Missouri Port Authority is the northernmost, ice-free port on the Mississippi. This lock-free port ships a million tons a year of bulk commodities, coil steel, lumber and heavy equipment. The Port is upgrading its own short line railroad which connects to both the Union Pacific and Burlington-Northern/Santa Fe. Multi-modal sites are available across the region with rail, barge and highway access.
Southeast Missouri State University has been located in Cape Girardeau since 1871. With over 10,000 current students, the University is expanding its outreach with the creation of the Southeast Missouri State Technology Village, a 400 acre site, split by I-55. The Technology Village will be a mixed-use development, envisioned to include not only a business, technology and research park, but also related and supportive uses and services.
