Crews have completed pouring concrete for the new, Iowa-bound, I-74 bridge deck.

This week through late this year, the last Iowa exit in Bettendorf is closed to Illinois-bound traffic on I-74.

That's Exit Four, the off-ramp to US Highway 67 and Grant Street downtown.

The I-74 bridge project requires this closure so contractors can work on the east-bound lanes. 

Drivers should take the Middle Road exit instead, then travel south on Kimberly Road to reach US 67 and Grant Street.

Drivers may want to avoid River Drive in Moline tonight. 

Weather permitting, a crew will pour concrete for the new I-74 deck over River Drive.

And all lanes will be closed between 19th Street and the I-74 ramps, from 8:00 p.m. until around 7:00 a.m. on Friday. 

Detours will be set up for traffic to follow.
