RI Intersection Project

WVIK Staff
18th Avenue and 38th Street, Rock Island.

A busy intersection in Rock Island will be under construction for more than two months. Work is scheduled to start Wednesday at 18th Avenue and 38th Street, and not be completed until the end of July.

The public works department says the project will include re-surfacing the roadway, sidewalks, and drive-ways, plus the addition of new signals.

Traffic will be allowed to go through the intersection during the work, but motorists are advised to expect delays, and if possible use alternate routes. 

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.
