Illinois-Iowa Memorial Bridge (I-74)
« on: June 13, 2019, 01:50:06 PM »

Does anyone have any recent photos of the new Memorial Bridge going up between Moline and Davenport?

Last I looked the piers were all in and they were erecting the large spans over the river channel.

I like that they are not using the generic "cubist" concrete based support pylons, but a take off on a corn sprout that looks like a "Y".

Perfect for two agricultural states like Iowa and Illinois and home to the largest makers of farm implements.

There's a YouTube channel that periodically posts drone footage, mostly based in the Quad Cities. Here's an video from yesterday:

That video gives a nice view of the current at grade with signals routing for WB I-74 on the Iowa side.

It's at grade on the Iowa bound Illinois side. Exit is at Avenue of Cities. The route is the now unsigned section of US 150 and 6 routing.

Most excellent! Thanks for locating this.

They appear to have 2 active live webcams as well but I just get black screens.
