As expected, 2019 has been challenging for the engineers and contractors who are building the new I-74 bridge in the Quad Cities.

After a harsh winter caused minor delays, Lunda Construction started erecting the steel sections of the bridge arches in March.

But then, as Michelle O'Neill reports the Mississippi River began to rise, and record flooding caused more delays.

Flooding on the Mississippi River is causing another delay in building the new, I-74 bridge.

Michelle O'Neill reports Iowa DOT Planner Sam Shea says the contractor is doing the best it can to catch up and keep workers safe.
