It’s over, it’s finally over! Our long summer of I-74 bridge commuting nightmares is coming to an end. The Illinois DOT announced that the Illinois-bound lanes of the bridge – stretching from the river to Moline’s 7th Avenue – will be opened Tuesday evening with no lane restrictions for the first time since last March.
The DOT said work continues on the northbound (Iowa bound) I-74 lanes, with completion scheduled for mid-September. Motorists should continue to be alert for lane closures and merging traffic in the construction zone.
