East Moline: Water Main Repair On 18th Ave., Delays Expected

Updated:

The City of East Moline, Ill., has announced lane closures on 18th Avenue that will likely cause delays on Thursday, June 20, 2013.

In order to perform an emergency repair of a water main under the street pavement of IL 92 (18th Ave) at 12th Street, the closure of two lanes on the north side of IL 92 is required.

Traffic control has been set-up to restrict traffic to one lane westbound and one lane eastbound on the highway.

While IL 92 will remain open to two-way-traffic, this temporary restriction in lanes will likely cause delays during times of peak traffic flow.

Please be advised of this situation and avoid traveling on IL 92 in this area if at all possible due to the construction and inevitable congestion.

Water main repairs will be ongoing Thursday; the street pavement will be replaced and lanes on IL 92 re-opened as soon as possible, likely Friday, June 21, 2013.
