Car Tour To Bettendorf Causing Bridge Back-ups

Iowa-bound traffic was more congested than usual on the I-74 Bridge over the Mississippi River Thursday. There was an accident before noon, but police say the real culprit is a popular car show. 

The Hot Rod Power Tour started rolling into the Isle of Capri parking lot around midday. Nearly 3,500 drivers in collector cars are expected and when you account for spectators, as many as 10,000 people will converge on the site for the free event near downtown Bettendorf. After the accident was cleared and traffic congestion on the bridge continued, we contacted the City of Bettendorf and the police chief said it was due to all the people headed to the car show.

The Hot Rod Power Tour is traveling to Seven cities in Seven days. It leaves Bettendorf tomorrow and heads to the Wisconsin Dells.
