Ben Butterworth Parkway


For the first time in decades, a key part of one of Moline's most popular parks has been repaired. 

Friday morning, city officials cut a ribbon to celebrate the re-surfacing of the bike and pedestrian trail on the Ben Butterworth Parkway.


Moline police report a diligent crew has found the body of Malik Willams of Galesburg. This morning around 10:00 A.M., Marine 43 of the Rock Island Arsenal Fire Department located the 25-year-old man's body in the same area in Moline where he went into the Mississippi River.   

XStream Cleanup Starts New Schedule

Jun 6, 2016
XStream Cleanup

An annual one-day, environmental clean-up event in the Quad Cities will not be held this summer. Instead, the XStream Cleanup will sponsor several smaller events with volunteers picking up garbage and debris. 


Riders on the Channel Cat will notice some major changes this summer. The water taxi operated by Metro Link will begin its 22nd season Friday, and offer a new phone app to buy tickets, and in July a new "home port" will open, just upstream from the current dock in Moline.
