The mayor of Moline talked about recent accomplishments and goals for the coming year in his state of the city address. The mayor said there's a lot going on in Moline right now.    

One of the projects highlighted are the changes to John Deere Road. They expect to help cut down on a lot of traffic issues by building an overpass near the 38th Street intersection. Construction on that starts in a month.
  
The Moline Amtrak station is also in the works. The city says rail service is expected to start there next year.
     
The mayor also talked about a Sam's Club and Holiday Inn Express that will be opening up in the city.

"the developers are starting to come to us," Mayor Scott Raes said. "They can see the success that is going on and when you have that arrow in your quiver, and are not having to do the tracking down of all these parties. That's good for Moline."

The River Bend Commons project was also discussed. It's set to open this year as new student housing.
