“We’re going to have a lot of work going on, between $20 million, plus of street projects, and $7 million, plus in sewer projects,” said City of Davenport Assistant Public Works Director, Clay Merrit said. “We’ve got trail projects going on throughout the entire city, so there’s a lot of construction occurring.”
