Road Construction: Photographic glimpses of past projects

We once again are surrounded by road construction in Davenport. If you are planning on visiting us at Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center at the Davenport Public Library – Main Street branch between now and the end of December please remember that Harrison Street is closed and Brady Street is now a two-way until the end of the year.

The great news is you still end up right by the library and driving south down Brady Street is pretty interesting with the skyline view and architecture of the buildings.

Since this road change has put construction on our minds, we decided to share some photos of past construction projects for this week.

Here is hoping we have mild weather for late summer into autumn to keep all the construction projects on their expected timeframes.
