The flood barriers in Davenport are coming down.
Crews began working to clear the HESCO barriers off of River Drive on Tuesday.
The Mississippi River crested around 16.68 feet last week at Locks and Dam 15 and projections show it falling below minor flood state (15 feet) within a couple of days.
As of 9:30 a.m., the river level was at 15.69 feet.
It is quite a change from a year ago, when the Quad Cities was experiencing record flooding and the barrier was breached on April 30, sending water rushing into downtown Davenport.
