A new bus service is designed to reduce traffic congestion during construction of the new I-74 bridge. On Monday the "Stretch" commuter bus service began carrying people between Bettendorf and downtown Moline, and Bettendorf and downtown Rock Island.
Continuing road work on I-74 in Moline may cause more problems for drivers this week. The Illinois Department of Transportation says starting today at 8:00 am, a crew closed one eastbound lane under the Avenue of the Cities bridge. The lane is set to reopen at 3:00 pm. And the 8-to-3 schedule will be repeated Wednesday through Friday.
