MOLINE, Illinois -- The John Deere Road three lane expansion project is finishing up right before Thanksgiving. Here's what you can expect over the next three days as crews open everything back up.

Left turn lanes are now open. Crews have shifted the traffic cones at 41st Street, 53rd Street and 60th Street to open up the newly constructed turn lanes.

Here is what to expect over the next two days:

Tuesday, Nov. 20. 

The third lane on both east and westbound lanes will open up. The processes will take almost all day, but traffic should be unaffected. This is a major step as the $68 Million construction project ends about six moths ahead of schedule.


Wednesday, Nov. 21

The John Deere Road on-ramp from westbound I-74 will open. Drivers traveling north on I-74 will be able to exit to eastbound John Deere Road. The ramp will have a dedicated lane. Traffic will not need to merge into an existing lane.
