18th Street Rehabilitation Project
Work on the 18th Street Rehabilitation Project began Oct. 1. The street will be under construction between Spruce Hills Drive and Tech Drive throughout October. It consists of full depth PCC patching and diamond grinding. Construction will be phased in two stages. Each stage will close two lanes with two-way traffic being moved to the other two lanes. The start date and duration of the project are dependent on weather. For more information, contact the Bettendorf Public Works Department at 563-344-4055.
New SCALE Room featured at Bettendorf Middle School
Bettendorf Middle School is now host to a new SCALE Room. The room is based on the TILE room concept used at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, and similar setups around the country. The room is arranged to provide multiple levels of collaborative opportunities, ranging from mobile desks and flexible seating to multiple whiteboard spaces including four interactive whiteboards designed for students to have a hands-on experience. When the room is fully completed, it also will include accessibility features like a throwable microphone to amplify voices and two television screens to allow students to see presentations from any space in the room.
This room was funded through a Scott County Regional Authority Grant.
