Heads up to anyone traveling to and/or from Rock Island, the Rock Island gate at the Arsenal will be closed  through May 14 for DPW projects. Officials reported that the bridge will be getting a new paint job and Beck Avenue is getting repaved. Don't worry though, the Davenport bridge will remain open so you will still have the means to get where you need to go!

 

The Rock Island Arsenal Facebook page provides more details stating,

The Davenport Gate is open to support inbound and outbound traffic to and from Davenport and Rock Island. Left and right turns are allowed for traffic exiting the Arsenal during normal operation. All exiting vehicles are required to turn left toward Rock Island when the Government Bridge is closed due to barge traffic.

Officials also provided reassurance that there will be detour signs to outline the new route drivers will need to take temporarily.

Detour signs on Beck Avenue and Fort Armstrong Avenue will alert drivers approaching the Rock Island Gate to use the Davenport Gate. Drivers crossing from Rock Island or Davenport may have longer wait times. "Arsenal Traffic Only" signs are placed at the Rock Island Viaduct and Government Bridge.
