Starting Monday, December 3, 2012, Bridge Avenue will be closed at River Drive for water main and storm sewer work. This work is expected to be complete by December 22.

Starting the second full week of December, both eastbound lanes will be open throughout the project. The westbound outside (north) lane will be closed to allow water system, sewer system, and intersection patching work to continue at Mississippi Avenue, Esplanade Avenue, College Avenue, and Mississippi Avenue. The work at these locations is expected to be completed by December 22nd, at which time all of River drive will be open for the winter.

Work on River Drive to complete the resurfacing of the north two lanes between Mound and Oneida is expected to resume around April 1, 2013. The work should last approximately one month.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
