New I-74 Iowa bound up to River Drive, now open in Moline

Just in time for the holiday travel season, the new Iowa bound I-74 is now open, to help get drivers across the river faster.

MOLINE, Illinois-- Just in time for the holiday travel season, the new Iowa-bound Interstate 74 pavement is now open, to help get drivers across the Mississippi River faster.

The Avenue of the Cities on-ramp was opened on Friday.

Iowa-bound drivers can now take I-74 all the way to River Drive. Drivers still need to use the River Drive on-ramp, but the new lanes allow drivers to skip over the downtown train tracks.

Traffic merges into one lane at the 7th Avenue exit, but Iowa-bound drivers should be able to get to the existing I-74 Bridge quicker now than they had before.
