QUAD CITIES (KALA) — Rock Island traffic delays, yard waste collection reminders, and Thanksgiving city closures are today’s KALA News Today Headlines.

5th Street in Rock Island is closed between 17th and 18th Avenues because of a water leak investigation and repair. The street needs to b3e closed in order to fix it, and for the safety of the crews working on it. You can use 9th St. as an alternate route. Be aware of probable traffic delays around this area. With favorable weather, this project is expected to be done the Friday after Thanksgiving.

A reminder for East Moline residents. Yard waste disposal is available free of charge until Dec. 6th. Services will be closed next week for Thanksgiving. You can pick up a bundle of free bags every week at any of the following locations:

  • Maintenance Service, 1200 13th Ave
  • City Hall Annex, 912 16th Ave
  • City Hall, 915 16th Ave

Since next week is Thanksgiving, we’d like to remind listeners of some city closings during the holiday.

Davenport celebrates Thanksgiving on Thursday and Friday next week. All city offices and the Public Works Center will be closed, as well as the Police Department front desk and records. The public libraries are also closed during that time. Click here for a full list of closures in Davenport.

The City of Bettendorf is closing its offices for the holiday celebration too. City Hall is closed Thursday and Friday, and garbage, recycling, and yard waste collection are delayed one day. So, if you normally receive services Thursday, you will receive them Friday, and if you normally receive them Friday, you’ll get them Saturday. Transit is not open on Thanksgiving Day but reopens the day after. Click here for more information. 

On Saturday, Nov. 23, some streets in Downtown Davenport will be closed for the Festival of Trees parade. Check the map to see when cars need to be moved from certain streets.
