Where

Downtown East Moline at 15th Avenue, The Rust Belt Area at 12th Avenue, and The Bend at the riverfront.  

When

Design is underway. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2025 and be completed in 2027.  

Why

Barriers like railroad crossings and lack of pedestrian infrastructure are keeping our Greater Downtown areas separated, which limits connectivity and future growth. 

Funding

This project is funded in part  by a $23.7 million federal RAISE grant.
