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 Access Project and is required to reconstruct the intersection to make it more
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

trucks entering and leaving the construction zone.
