As drivers get used to the I-74 detour in Moline, more police officers are making sure traffic runs as smoothly as possible.

A lot more traffic changes will be implemented as work continues on the new I-74 Mississippi River Bridge. Project managers want drivers to prepare for the existing Iowa-bound bridge to be restricted to just one lane of local traffic. Or to avoid it altogether.
