I-74 Bridge Delays Continue

Iowa Dept of Transportation

After several weeks of traffic tie-ups on one side of the I-74 bridge between Moline and Bettendorf, delays will now affect the other side, for several weeks.

Today crews began repairing the left lane of the west-bound side of the bridge, then next week will move to the right lane - and those repairs will continue through August 30th. 

The Iowa Department of Transportation says when workers switch lanes next Monday (8/17), they will also have to close the State Street off-ramp in downtown Bettendorf. That means the first exit will be Middle Road.
