Flood Warning: When rivers will crest and how high the water will get

I-74 bridge construction finally drawing to a close

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 bridge is open! The bridge is open!

The bridge is open! The bridge is open!

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.
