Attention to those commuting in/to Moline tomorrow (Wednesday)! The exit to River Drive in Moline will be temporarily closed on Wednesday due to continued construction on the new I-74 bridge.

In an announcement on social media on Tuesday, officials from the I-74 River Bridge said that there will be another temporary closure due to construction on the new I-74 bridge.

Officials said in the announcement that the River Drive exit in Moline will be closed from approximately 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This closure is to allow contractors to move construction equipment and work on I-74 bridge structures.

Overnight closures of River Drive and the off-ramp will also continue through the end of the month according to officials. Those overnight closures of River Drive are between 19th Street and the I-74 on-ramp.
