DAVENPORT, Iowa – Oct. 26, 2016 – Construction work at the westbound Interstate 74 and U.S. 67/State Street (exit 4) interchange will require closing the exit 4 ramp to traffic beginning Monday, Nov. 7, until Wednesday, Nov. 23, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Davenport construction office.

During construction, motorists traveling north on westbound I-74 may access U.S. 67/State Street by continuing north and exiting at the Middle Road interchange (exit 3), then turning left onto Middle Road, then using the eastbound I-74 on-ramp, and then traveling south on eastbound I-74 to the Grant Street/State Street interchange (exit 4).

There will be a 14-foot width lane restriction and a 75-foot vehicle length restriction in the open lane during construction.

The Iowa DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution, obey the posted speed limit and other signs in the work area, and be aware that traffic fines for moving violations are at least double in work zones. As in all work zones, drivers should stay alert, allow ample space between vehicles, and wear seat belts.
