Plans to expand John Deere Road in Moline are delayed.

Officials with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) tell News 8 that construction will start in the fall instead of this spring, as previously reported.

Jae Miller, Chief Communication Officer with IDOT, says the delay is “due to environmental permitting issues,” and now the project is scheduled for a June 2013 letting with Phase 1 construction set to begin likely in August or September.
