Traffic detour following water main break

Feb 11, 2014

There’s a traffic detour for Peoria drivers to get around the water main break. Starting early Tuesday afternoon, NON-truck traffic on southbound Route 29 in Peoria will take Jefferson Street to Van Buren, Adams Street and Hayward Streets, back to Jefferson Street. The portion of Adams Street from Hayward to Van Buren will be temporarily converted into two-way traffic separated by barrels during this time.

Southbound traffic on Route 29 traveling toward Peoria from the north will move to the McCluggage Bridge to route 116 in East Peoria.  Once there, truck traffic must go south. But all other traffic can use I-74 over the Murray Baker bridge to get back to Peoria.
