River Drive and the Butterworth Parkway parking lot have been closed at the Western Illinois University-Quad Cities Riverfront Campus because of flooding. The WIU-QC parking lot is open, however, with access to the campus via the 34th Street entrance.

Additional parking is available at the Riverside Aquatic Center, near the northwest side of the pool house along 5th Avenue and at the 34th Street and 4th Avenue lot. Metrolink's "The Connect" shuttles will operate at these locations.

I'm the city editor at the Quad-City Times. You can reach me at dbowerman@qctimes.com or 563-383-2450.
