Iowa DOT To Reduce I-74 Eastbound To One Lane This Weekend
If you're planning to do some traveling this weekend from Iowa to Illinois and plan to use the I-74 bridge, expect some land reduction from Saturday evening to Sunday morning as crews plan to do some pavement patching on the Iowa side.
The Iowa Department of Transportation announced on Friday that eastbound I-74 over Duck Creek will be reduced to one lane overnight Saturday, Dec. 3 beginning at approximately 7 p.m. and is anticipated to reopen Sunday, Dec. 4 at approximately 11 a.m., weather permitting. Contractors will be repairing concrete pavement on the bridge over Duck Creek in Bettendorf.
The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
