I-74 bridge girder falls

News

Some concerning pictures from downtown Bettendorf earlier this week at the building site of the new Interstate 74 bridge.

Crews were setting girders just south of Grant Street when the second girder rolled and shifted.

That caused the girder to partially fall.

There were no injuries.

I-74 bridge project manager Danielle Mulholland told Local 4 News that crews are evaluating the piece that fell to see if it can still be used.
