New construction is beginning today (Monday, March 2nd) on the new I-74 bridge which will cause lane closures on River Drive in Moline.

According to KWQC and the I-74 River Bridge Facebook page, people should expect lane closures on River Drive. Lane closures will be in both directions between 19th street and 23rd street. The lane closures are to allow contractors to work on the overhead structure. The lane closures will take place during off-peak hours.

This is expected to start Monday and go until Friday, March 6. This is dependent on the weather.

The I-74 River Bridge Facebook page also mentions that over the next couple months, motorists will need to be aware of trucks delivering steel girders to construction sites in Moline. They ask motorists to drive with caution and give the trucks room.
