Proposed Moline Sam's Club May Cause Traffic Concerns
A Sam's Club and a Sam's Club gas station could be the next additions to a retail development project in Moline.
A Menards and a car dealership are already there on the eastern half of John Deere Road and the city wants the entire area to be filled with retail stores and restaurants.
But with growth comes traffic concerns.
The only way to access the businesses is on the two lane 44th Avenue and despite traffic concerns, it seems Moline City Council will move forward with this project.
"I think they're ready to start construction now or as soon as possible and I think as soon as we see these approvals, they would submit for building permits and start construction this year," Moline Land Development Manager Shawn Christ said.
This is just the beginning of the process.
The company still needs to submit final design plans and apply for building permits.
