LOCAL: Major I-74 Construction Set To Begin Next Week

Construction season is here again, and one of the Quad Cities’ largest projects will soon get underway.

Major construction on Interstate 74 was scheduled to begin on Monday, March 28th, with closures to ramps, lanes and interchanges from south of 7th Avenue in Moline to the I-74 bridge. According to WQAD, the project involves an overhaul to many components of the roadway and crews will be repairing the bridge deck, repairing structural steel, replacing expansion joints, and placing a new wearing surface. Crews will also be working on the 3rd Avenue/River Drive and 7th Avenue interchanges.

This project should be very complicated, with lots of detours and closures on both sides of the Mississippi River. In Iowa, the southbound entrance ramp to I-74 from State Street will be closed (this will last the entire project). [WQAD]

Construction is scheduled to last until mid-August, so plan ahead and prepare for delays to your commute.
