Reconstruction of Moline's 5th Avenue between 11th and 14th streets, is delayed for at least a week.

According to a city news release, the weather forecast has pushed back Valley Construction's start of the project to sometime between April 22 and May 6.

A new water main, sanitary sewer and pavement will be installed in the four-block stretch. Landscaping and sidewalk improvements also will be completed.

The $1.4 million project is the last phase of a three-phase reconstruction of 5th Avenue.

The project is being completed one block at a time, starting between 11th and 12th streets and including the intersection at 12th Street and 5th Avenue.
