Alternatives to the Main and University construction
If you’ve found yourself dreading the southbound approach to the Main and University intersection, take heart. The city of Peoria is offering a map of alternate route options.
That comes with the southbound lane reduction from Parkside to Main Street on University. There are also lane reductions on Main one block off of University in both directions.
Next week, the city is planning to also completely close a block of Main Street from University to Elmwood.
City Public Works officials are cautioning people to slow down in the area. They are also offering a map of alternate routes and encouraging drivers to elect to take Interstate into downtown.
