Millions of dollars are spent annually on maintenance and reconstruction projects in the Quad Cities. Maintaining the existing transportation system is one of the highest priorities of the urban area, particularly with aging infrastructure. The 2040 Quad Cities Long Range Transportation Plan outlines significant improvements to river crossing capacity to improve the flow of traffic in the metropolitan area.
Using alternative modes of transportation, such as buses, carpools, bicycling or walking, are encouraged to help reduce traffic congestion and maintain good air quality. Residents and visitors can consider transit options by contacting Bettendorf Transit at (563) 344-4085, Davenport Citibus at (563) 888-2151, or Metro at (309) 788-3360 or visiting www.qctransit.com.
Media information in greater detail will be provided by the respective jurisdiction as the project approaches its construction period.
