Ben Butterworth Parkway Closed for Flood Cleanup

Moline Parks and Recreation Department

Following this spring's record flood, the Ben Butterworth Parkway in Moline will stay closed until further notice.

The Parks and Recreation Department is asking people to stay out of the park, including the playgrounds, shelters, and restrooms, and off the trail, until they all can be cleaned and repaired.

It's for safety, and to allow the work to be completed as soon as possible. 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
