I-74 Mississippi River Bridge Construction

During the I-74 Mississippi River bridge construction, all river traffic will need to use an alternate route away from the river banks to avoid the construction zones.  Buoys and warning signs are installed to warn boaters navigating the river near the I-74 Mississippi River bridge.  For additional information regarding this project, visit
