The City of Davenport reports that South Concord Street has been closed to traffic between River Drive and Wapello Avenue because of flooding.

Access to businesses located along Wapello and River Drive West of Wapello are expected to remain accessible through the weekend.

High water signs are in place the entire length of South Concord Street between Utah Avenue and River Drive. As waters rise, other areas to the west along South Concord may be closed between Wapello and Utah.

Drivers are advised to be cautious when driving in these areas for the next week.

Residents along South Concord and Enchanted Island may pick up sand bags at the parking lot of the Enchanted Inn.

Residents in areas affected by river stages at 13 feet to 15 feet may also contact Public Works at 326-7923 to make a request for sand bags.

Solid waste services to residents in areas closed to local traffic along Wapello and South Concord will not be impacted by the current river stage.

Well this should cause even more damaged to the poorly maintained city boat ramp

Cripes half of one side is eaten away and you have to drive through a huge hole and the other side was blocked by the remains of a beaver house.

The city can't even afford to maintain a simple boat ramp and docl, how are they ever going to pay for upkeep on that bicycle bridge? Another 10 years and it'll look like the boat ramp and the upper end of the slough
