The City of Moline has announced that River Drive will be closed between 19th Street and the Interstate 74 on-ramp on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 10-11, to allow for demolition work on the old I-74 bridge.
Crews from Kramer North American will be removing steel beams and piers adjacent to the road. Watch for these traffic closures and detours:
- To reach Iowa-bound I-74 ramps: Motorists on westbound River Drive will be able to access the Iowa-bound on-ramp. Motorists on eastbound River Drive can turn right on 19th Street, left on 6th Avenue, and left onto the Iowa-bound on-ramp.
- River Drive detour: Motorists exiting Illinois-bound I-74 at River Drive must turn left on River Drive. To reach westbound River Drive, turn right on 23rd Street, right on 4th Avenue, and right on 19th Street to River Drive.
Downtown traffic may use 4th Avenue, 6th Avenue, or 7th Avenue to get around the River Drive closure.
