The Iowa-bound I-74 bridge will be reduced to one lane for construction- how will this affect your commute?

BETTENDORF- Beginning March 26, the Iowa-bound I-74 bridge will be reduced to one lane. A press release from the Iowa Department of Transportation outlines the traffic changes.

Drivers heading into downtown Bettendorf need to take Exit 4 to Grant Street/U.S. 67.

To get back onto I-74, follow the detour signs to 14th Street and turn left onto Kimberly Road, then right on Middle Road to access the westbound 1-74 ramp.

Trucks need to take Kimberly Road to Spruce Hills Road to access westbound I-74.

The traffic reroute is expected to last through May 2019. Drivers need to be careful as they move through construction zones. Anyone traveling on I-74 or Kimberly Road should plan for longer commutes and watch out for construction workers.
