QUAD CITIES, Ill./Iowa (KWQC) – The bike and pedestrian lane on the I-74 bridge will be temporarily closed starting Oct. 24 for maintenance.
Allows contractors to grind road widening links to facilitate the use of wheelchairs and other mobility equipment, the Iowa and Illinois departments of transportation and the cities of Bettendorf and Moline in a news release.
“We are committed to making the road accessible to everyone now and in the future,” said George Ryan, I-74 corridor manager. “This temporary closure allows us to reduce the need for further maintenance of the expansion joints.”
