On Monday, June 24, 2019, 14th Avenue will be closed to westbound traffic at 38th Street in order to construct new pedestrian access ramps, curbing and storm sewer. Two-way traffic on 38th Street and eastbound 14th Avenue traffic will be permitted. Vehicle and pedestrian access to all businesses along 14th Avenue and 38th Street will not be interrupted.
We anticipate that this work will be completed within about 3 weeks, weather pending. Upon completion of pedestrian access work, 14th Avenue should be re-opened to bi-directional traffic on July 12, 2019.
The main detour of westbound traffic will be south on 44th Street and then west on 18th Avenue to 30th Street and then north on 30th Street back to 14th Avenue. Please see attached diagram.
The City wishes to remind motorists and pedestrians that the 38th Street and 18th Avenue resurfacing projects are ongoing and to please reduce their traveling speed, exercise caution and expect potential delays due to the construction work. Please follow all posted construction signs for detour directions as needed and watch for trucks entering and leaving the construction zones.
Two of the City’s major north-south arterial streets: 17th Street and 30th Street will remain open and free of construction activities during this project.
Pedestrian traffic will be maintained at all times during construction along at least one side of the roadway.
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.
