Tomorrow, a crew will begin adding a lane to the I-74 bridge off-ramp in Bettendorf.

For weeks, west-bound traffic has been forced to exit onto Grant Street, using only one lane.

This week, the Iowa DOT will change the traffic detour in Bettendorf. Starting Wednesday, weather permitting, 12th Street and Kimberly Road will be restriped for two-way traffic.

As the I-74 Bridge Project continues, the Illinois DOT will change a few traffic patterns in Moline.

If you were driving through east-bound Interstate 74 in Moline on Monday morning between Avenue of the Cities and John Deere Road, you probably didn't notice Illinois State Police Master Sergeant Ron Salier pointing a radar gun at your car.

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.

An I-74 contractor has a few more bridges to demolish in Moline as part of this year's I-74 bridge construction. And some of the work will have to be done at night.

Some people who live near I-74 and 7th Avenue are having trouble sleeping because of work on the bridge project.

Michelle O'Neill has more on the source of the late night noise and when it'll end.


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.

It's taking time for the I-74 project team to implement traffic changes planned for this spring. The Iowa DOT will wait until tomorrow to start diverting all Iowa-bound traffic at Grant Street in downtown Bettendorf from the bridge to 14th Street, Kimberly Road, and Middle Road.
