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

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.

Quad City residents have consistently stated that aesthetics and having a unique landmark were the two factors that mattered most in the design of a replacement I-74 bridge.
