Continuing road work on I-74 in Moline may cause more problems for drivers this week. The Illinois Department of Transportation says starting today at 8:00 am, a crew closed one eastbound lane under the Avenue of the Cities bridge. The lane is set to reopen at 3:00 pm. And the 8-to-3 schedule will be repeated Wednesday through Friday.
In addition, the Illinois DOT says eastbound I-74 at Avenue of the Cities will be completely closed Saturday at 7:00 pm through Sunday at 6:00 am. Traffic will be detoured to the on- and off-ramps at the interchange.
The closures are necessary for workers to repair beams on the bridge that carries Avenue of the Cities over the highway.
