Public works crews closed the bridge over Spencer Creek on Devils Glen Road after damage was discovered during a routine bridge inspection.
A representative of Bettendorf’s Public Works Department said their crews inspect bridges every two years. It was during the most recent inspection of the Devils Glen Road bridge over Spencer Creek that crews discovered damage to a structural member.
As a precautionary measure, crews closed the bridge Wednesday, July 24, 2013.
Repair work was expected to begin Thursday, July 25. The repairs could take about a week, and possibly less than a week, to complete.
Motorists who might travel on Devils Glen Road in the area near, and west of, Hidden Hills Golf Course will have to use Barr Street or Utica Ridge Road north to Mt Joy Avenue/210th Street to get around the closed road.
