DAVENPORT, Iowa – Nov. 3, 2021 – A pavement patching project on Interstate 280 between the Mississippi River bridge and Iowa 22 (exit 8) in Davenport will require closing both directions of I-280 to traffic beginning on Friday night, Nov. 5, weather permitting, according to the Iowa Department of Transportation’s Davenport construction office.
During these closures, a 14-foot-4-inch height restriction will be in place. Local travelers should follow a marked detour route using Iowa 22, Business U.S. 61, U.S. 67, and Illinois 92. Through traffic is encouraged to use I-80.
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.
