When I first arrived in the Quad Cities, I would memorize the streets by what was on them. There was 'Bank Road, Pizza Place Road, Gas Station Street.'

'Big Garage street' was where the Butterworth Centre & Deere-Wiman House was located -- the corner of 12th Avenue and 7th Street in Moline. I remembered it as a tricky intersection too, but that difficulty has been mitigated.

Installation of stop signs on 7th Street have made the intersection a three-way stop.

That should make getting on and off 'Big Garage Street' a lot easier.
