Rock Island Announces Lane Closure & Detour Starts On Wednesday
Say it with me... "ROAD CONSTRUCTION, UGH!"
Yeah, more road construction is coming to Rock Island it begins tomorrow (Wednesday). If you frequently travel on 30th street between 7th and 14th avenues, you're going to want to take a detour, especially if you're traveling northbound.
In a press release on Tuesday, the City of Rock Island announced that beginning on Wednesday, November 2 (tomorrow), the northbound lane on 30th Street between 7th and 14th avenues will be closed to traffic. The reason for the lane closure is so the City can make a repair to its water infrastructure.
City officials say that northbound traffic on 30th Street will be detoured on 14th Avenue to 38th Street and then to 7th Avenue.
Travel delays can be expected during the construction at or near this location, according to Rock Island city officials.
Here is the good news though (if Mother Nature is in a good mood), the City of Rock Island says that pending favorable weather and commencement, the anticipated date of completion and resumption of normal traffic should be within a couple of days. Hopefully, it's done by the weekend.
The City of Rock Island is asking motorists to please follow all posted construction signs for detour directions as needed and watch for trucks entering and leaving the construction zone.
Even though this repair is going to benefit people, the City of Rock Island apologizes in advance for any inconvenience due to this road work and is appreciative of the patience and consideration of the traveling public.
