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 Connect QC 2050: Quad Cities Long Range Transportation Plan outlines significant improvements to river crossing capacity to improve the flow of traffic in the metropolitan area. Media information in greater detail will be provided by the respective jurisdiction as the project approaches its construction period. Periodic notices of overall bridge restrictions will be provided collectively by Bi-State Regional Commission. See the most recent PDF notice below.
