Heavy rain with more on the way is sending the Mississippi River rising again over major flood stage in the Quad Cities.
As a result, The City of Davenport is announcing more changes. Additional flood protection measures are being taken since the Mississippi River is predicted to reach 21 feet by Saturday, June 1st and a chance for a second crest in the following week.
City officials say River Drive will be closed between Rockingham Rd/Hwy 22 through Bettendorf beginning at 1 p.m May 29th.
The River’s Edge temporarily closed Tuesday night and the Compost Facility also temporarily closed.
