Dixon. IL - The Illinois Department of Transportation announces today that weather permitting construction work on I-74 in Moline will begin on Monday evening, May 20. All States Painting is starting a $76,900 contract to wash the bridges on I·74 from 2nd Avenue to south of 7th Avenue. The project also includes the structures for the ramps at the 3rd Avenue and 7th Avenue interchanges. All ten of the bridges are scheduled to be completed by June 14, 2013.
The only lane closures on I-74 will be between 9 p.m. in the evening until 5 a.m. the next moming to avoid traffic delays and minimize congestion. With the limited nighttime visibility, drivers are asked to be extra alert when driving past the work areas. The contractor will be working additional hours from the parking areas and streets below the bridges to reach some sections of the structures.
Motorists are reminded to slow down and drive carefully through all construction zones.
