MOLINE — A block of 12th Avenue and a ramp to eastbound John Deere Road will be closed Thursday to allow for roadwork.

According to a press release from McCarthy Improvement, the contractor for the John Deere Road expansion project, pavement patching will take place on eastbound John Deere Road between Interstate 74 and 38th Street. The entrance ramp from westbound I-74 to eastbound John Deere Road will be closed so that pavement can be safely removed and replaced the pavement. The entrance ramp will be shut down starting at 9 a.m. Thursday and is expected to reopen by 4 p.m. Friday.

During this time, motorists who want to travel from westbound I-74 to eastbound John Deere Road will need to follow the marked detour and take the three cloverleaf ramps.
