There's great news for the thousands of commuters who use River Drive in Davenport: it's back open!

Over the weekend--without any fanfare--the barricades came down near Mound Street and the Village of East Davenport. For weeks, a resurfacing project has reduced traffic to one lane in each direction. The lane closures caused traffic to back up during peak times.

The work was scheduled to continue until the end of the month. We've been trying to reach someone from the city to find out if the contractor finished early or if crews will be moving to another section of the road. For now, it's wide open.
