As one contractor continues adding segments to the new I-74 bridge arch, another is starting to re-build the east-bound lanes in Moline.

On Thursday, eastbound traffic from the existing bridge will be detoured to the other side of the highway and go head-to-head with Iowa-bound traffic. 

In addition, the Avenue of the Cities exit will be closed to eastbound traffic. Drivers should use the 7th Avenue exit instead.

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.
