Detour and Road Closure to Thru Traffic, 12th Street at 23rd Avenue

Starting Monday, September 9, 2013, construction at the intersection of 12th Street and 23rd Avenue is currently proposed to begin.
Pavement removal and replacement on 12th Street will require traffic to be detoured away from this intersection. A detour for 12th Street traffic around this intersection is to be placed in coordination with underground utility work along 23rd Avenue.
Road closure to thru traffic along 23rd Avenue between 12th Street to 14th Street will be needed to allow for this year's construction to be completed.
Travel delays can be expected during the construction at or near this location. Pending favorable weather and commencement, the anticipated date of completion and resumption of normal traffic may require several weeks at the 12th Street intersection.
Traffic access along 23rd Avenue between 12th to 14th Streets may require road closure to thru traffic up until January, 2014.
Please follow all posted construction signs for detour directions when needed and watch for trucks entering and leaving the construction zones.
The City of Rock Island is sorry for any inconvenience due to this road work and appreciates the patience and consideration of the traveling public
