BETTENDORF, Iowa -- Your commute across the Interstate 74 Bridge will soon get much shorter.

On Monday, May 20, crews planned to switch all I-74 local traffic from Kimberly Road to the westbound I-74 ramp from 14th Street.  The original plan was to make the change on Friday, but it was postponed due to weather.

The right lane on 14th St. will only allow access to the I-74 on-ramp, while the left lane will allow drivers to access the I-74 on-ramp or Kimberly Road.

The updates to the changes are being maintained on the I-74 River Bridge Facebook page, managed by the Iowa and Illinois Departments of Transportation.
