Update: Kirkwood Boulevard In Davenport Closed Due To Accident

Updated:

Update: Repairs are complete and Kirkwood Blvd. is back open.

Kirkwood Boulevard is closed near the Village of East Davenport because of an accident.

Police say around 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013, a 20-year-old man in an SUV struck the bridge supports to the railroad viaduct that goes over the road. The driver was taken to the hospital for injuries. He was cited for failure to maintain control.

The road will be closed through the weekend so the bridge can be inspected and repaired.

In September, 2012, a car crashed into the same bridge. Several people inside the car were hurt including a young woman, who later died from her injuries.
