Construction work on Middle Road to last into November


BETTENDORF, Iowa — Middle Road will be under construction for more than a month starting Wednesday, October 5, 2016.

The roadwork will be between Hopewell Avenue and north of Forest Grove Drive; the project will continue into November, according to a statement from the City of Bettendorf.

Workers will be milling the Hot Mix Asphalt overlay already in place, patching the underlying concrete base, widening the roadway, as well as resurfacing and marking the pavement.

Two-way traffic will be in place, with reduced speed, and one lane of traffic being moved onto the gravel shoulder.

Ultimately the amount of time it takes to finish the work will depend on weather, according to the city.
