Press release submitted by city of Rock Island


Starting on Monday, November 12, 2012, 27th Avenue will be closed to thru-traffic at its west

pedestrian friendly. Normal traffic will resume after the work is completed in approximately
2 weeks.
27th Avenue traffic will be detoured to 25th Avenue between 9th and 11th Streets during this
