This is the information taken from 2006 Quad City Times article:

If federal and state funding is available, construction on the new bridge could begin by 2010, with approach work and configurations in downtown Bettendorf and Moline beginning as early as 2007.

The bridge itself is expected to cost between $170 million and $190 million.
