Traffic update includes new I-74 detour

detour

• Illinois-bound  I-74 in Bettendorf: Contractors will be working on the eastbound (Illinois-bound) I-74 lanes which will require traffic pattern changes beginning today.

The last exit to Iowa (Exit 4 Grant Street/US 67) on eastbound I-74 will be closed. To get to Grant Street/US 67, eastbound I-74 traffic must exit at Middle Road (Exit 3) and take southbound Kimberly Road.

Drivers heading to Illinois: Traffic on eastbound I-74 will be shifted just south of Middle Road to the newly constructed westbound (Iowa-bound) lanes in a head-to-head traffic pattern separated by concrete barriers. Traffic will shift back to the eastbound lanes to continue on the existing eastbound bridge.

Eastbound I-74 on-ramps at Middle Road, Grant Street/US 67, and State Street will remain open.

The traffic pattern changes are anticipated to continue through late 2020.

• Division Street closed: Division Street in Davenport will be completely closed between 4th and 12th street from Wednesday through Friday for ongoing construction and work on a water main in the southbound lanes. Use an alternate route or follow signed detours.

• Jersey Ridge Road: Work on the water main on Jersey Ridge Road between Garfield Street and George Washington Boulevard will be completed later this week. Resurfacing work is anticipated to begin shortly after that.
