A very visible step in the multi-year project to build a new I-74 Bridge is scheduled to start later this week. Beginning Thursday night, through Monday in Moline, crews will "remove" the Iowa-bound I-74 viaduct.
Each night weather permitting, starting at 8:30 pm, through to 6 am the next morning, 7th Avenue will be closed from 19th to 23rd Street.
Westbound traffic in downtown Moline should use 4th Avenue, while eastbound drivers should use 6th Avenue.
The project should not affect eastbound traffic on I-74, including the on- and off-ramps.
