Starting May 1st, a traffic pattern change will be coming to Moline's John Deere Road.

John Deere Road (which to me feels like the Quad Cities' wild Autobahn) is going to have a new traffic pattern, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

The change will be on John Deere Road between 16th Street and 35th Street.

Here's what they're doing:

  • Eastbound John Deere Road will be one lane from 27th Street to I-74
  • For 3 weeks, that eastbound lane on JDR to the I-74 southbound ramp will be closed.
  • If you want to get on I-74 southbound, you'll have to follow the detour signs that will take you to the John Deere Road/I-74 interchange.

They're doing work on the JDR bridges over 27th & 74, which includes things like an expansion joint replacement, deck patching, and hot-mix asphalt resurfacing. It's a $7 million project that's expected to be done by the end of October. This all starts on May 1st so we'll probably be dealing with it for a while.

As with all of the construction in the QC, you should change around your route if you have to go through this spot on a daily commute or leave early if you can't avoid it. There will be signage to watch for as well as workers in the area so make sure you slow down.

No one could have ever imagined that they would be doing any of these things when they were growing up. As a younger individual, you probably never wanted to go to bed early and thought you'd be a night owl all of your life, but as you grew up you started to fall into the habit of going to bed early. Many things affect our daily life as we grow up and cause us to change our habits.

Here is a list of 12 things people never thought they would do as adults, but ended up doing anyway.
