Starting on March 18, local traffic to downtown Moline must use 19th street.

All on and off ramps will stay open on the Illinois bound I-74 during 2019.

If everything goes according to schedule, beginning  March 20, local traffic on the Iowa bound bridge must take Exit 4 to Grant Street/U.S. 67 in Bettendorf.

From now until May 2019 local Bettendorf Trafic will be routed from Grant Street to 14th Street to Kimberly Road then to Middle Road to access Westbound I-74.
