Davenport Streets closed due to storm damage

DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) — City officials announced street closures due to storm damage from Thursday night.

Belle Ave between Locust and Elm St and Elm St between Belle Ave and Jersey are closed due to downed trees and power lines.

City officials tell us MidAmerican Energy and their contractors are clearing the trees from power lines and repairing power lines at this time. Due to the severity of damage in this area and tree debris, these sections of road may not be re-opened until Saturday, October 8, 2016.

Officials say forestry crews will be continuing to work on clearing tree debris from the travelled right-of-way throughout the City through Friday evening and will return on Saturday morning as necessary to clear any remaining debris.
