Construction is underway for a Rock Island business after a new Wal-Mart is set to take over its space.
Christine Elsburg Insurance Agency was built thirteen years ago on 11th street. Now with a new Wal-Mart moving in, they are forced to move out.
The city of Rock Island bought their building and they're using the money to build an entirely new place on 46th avenue. Black Hawk Technical Center, and Misman Stanley engineering will also be joining the agency.
"We're kind of excited about going to a new place we never thought we'd have to tear down the building because we really like our building, but I'm sure we'll like the new one too, so we're getting excited about it," says Christine Elsberg, Owner, Christine Elsberg Insurance Agency.
The construction is set to be finished by thanksgiving. Then the businesses can move everything in.
