Road work in the Quad Cities is always interesting, on one hand, I've seen it start and finish in the blink of an eye. Other times seem to take forever. Obviously the size of the project, and many other things going into it, but it seems as though the work on Harrison will keep going strong.
A few weeks ago three lanes were closed on Harrison for some heavy work next to Vanderveer park. This week they moved up the road a bit to close two lanes.
Harrison Street has just enough traffic for this road to work to cause a bit of a traffic jam, but if you find yourself driving during nonpeak times this work's only effect on you will be when you have to move over a few lanes, besides that there shouldn't be much delay at all because of it.
Harrison Street has been seeing this pretty heavy work since April. Thankfully crews have only been working on one section at a time and then moving up once they are done with that section.
As of now, they have made some serious progress on the road, but we will still most likely be seeing a few more lanes closed here and there on Harrison as road work season continues.
If you hope to avoid any future traffic jams or construction, you can keep up to date with road closures and other traffic frustrations here, or check out the road cameras here.
Also big thankyou to all the incredible workers, and crews keeping our roads up to date and safe!
Hotel Davenport Demolition
The Hotel Davenport is located at 5202 Brady St. and was reportedly built in the early 1970s. Earlier this year it was decided that this hotel was no longer set to have guests.
According to the Quad Cities times
, the Davenport hotel has faced a number of fires, along with safety and health code violations. This has led to the call for its demolition. I've driven past it many times and have seen that the building had clearly began to deteriorate.
It was scheduled for demolition earlier this year, and said demolition began in April. Many involved in this project are excited to see what the future holds for this lot in Davenport.
I drive past this spot every day for work, and over the last month have snagged some pictures of the demolition.
