Area road project changes

The Illinois Department of Transportation is suspending non-emergency roadwork to help with traffic flow during the holiday week.  I-DOT says the roadwork suspension will last through Sunday. 

 But there are ongoing road work projects for motors to plan for. In Peoria County, the Westbound I-474 ramp to Route 116 will be closed.  In Tazewell County, I-474 will be reduced to one lane west of Interstate 74 near Morton.  Also near Morton, the eastbound 74 ramp to southbound I-155 will be reduced to one lane. 

 Also the City of Peoria will see a long-term traffic change starting Tuesday. Pennsylvania Avenue between Peoria Avenue and California will close until December for pavement reconstruction.  Access will remain to the OSF Parking lot on Pennsylvania and Easter Seals can be accessed at Armstrong Avenue.
