The race route will be closed and traffic detoured for the Bix 7 Saturday morning, July 28, 2012.

During the race hours, crews will rearrange the detour already in place for construction.

Drivers who might normally use Bridge Road to Locust as their detour  from River Drive will find that route blocked during the Bix 7 race.  Only residents who live inside the Bix course will be allowed to use Bridge Avenue from River Drive.  All other traffic will be turned back at Mississippi, forced to drive back to Bettendorf to use old Kimberly Road to Locust Street as their detour.

Drivers traveling between Third Street and Locust Street at the west end of the detour area can use Harrison Street to go south or Main Street to go north.  At the east end of the detour area, drivers can use Kimberly Road to travel between State and Locust streets.

The additional traffic restrictions will be in place Saturday, July 28, 2012 from 7 a.m. to noon.
