On Saturday, November 4, 2017, utility work will begin on 17th Street between 4th Avenue and 5th Avenue. The City of Rock Island will be completing storm sewer repairs in addition to water main construction. Thru traffic will be closed and restricted to customers and employees of adjacent businesses.
In order to complete this work, it is necessary to close traffic for north bound travel. Non-construction traffic will be detoured on 17th Street at 5th Avenue, east to 18th Street, north on 18th Street to 4th Avenue, and then back west to 17th Street via 4th Avenue.
Pending favorable weather, the anticipated completion date of this work is to be November 24, 2017.
Travel delays can be expected during the construction at or near this location. Please follow all posted construction signs for detour directions when needed, and watch for trucks entering and leaving the construction zone.
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.
