Fishermen, water skiers, wake boarders, sailors, and other boaters should be careful when traveling near a construction zone in the Quad Cities. That zone is located on the Mississippi River between Bettendorf and Moline, upstream from the I-74 bridge.
That's where Lunda Construction and other contractors are building the new, interstate bridge.
Project Manager, Danielle Mulholland, says her team and the Iowa Department of Transportation have issued a River Traffic Advisory. The goal is to remind boaters to "use extreme caution and avoid the construction zone when possible."
Mulholland also says the bridge project team is keeping a close eye on the flood forecast for the Mississippi River in the Quad Cities. The contractors are required to have contingency plans for various levels of high water.
