FROM KWQC TV-6
Davenport, Iowa (KWQC) - The city of Davenport has implemented more road closures as we all prepare for the river to climb by the end of this week. Wednesday morning the Mississippi was at 19 feet- with a predicted crest at 20.1 feet by Sunday, April 7th.
River Drive /Highway 61 is now closed between Rockingham Road/Highway 22 and Bridge Ave. The detour routes now have traffic commuting along Rockingham Road on the west side of Davenport in lieu of River Drive. These detours include other side streets depending upon which direction you are coming from.
A flood detour is likely in Bettendorf along the riverfront later this week. In addition to this, crews will be keeping a close eye on conditions at Mound and River Drive. Should those roads need closure that will impact the current closures that are in place.
