A good Friday the 13th to all. In this crazy year of COVID-19, derechos and heavily-contested presidential election results, we pause for a very historical moment in the Quad-Cities — the opening of the Iowa-bound span of the Interstate 74 bridge across the Mississippi River between Moline and Bettendorf.
It's been a long-time coming. We've been talking about it for decades. We've endured months and months of delays, and the project is nowhere close to being finished as the Illinois-bound span is still under construction.
But beginning this morning, be a part of history and enjoy the ride into Iowa. But let's not forget the "Twin Spans." Check out these historic photos from days gone by.
