Peoria Prepares to Replace an Aged Bridge

The MacArthur Highway Bridge Replacement Project got more public attention last night when residents had the opportunity to see the two options for it.

 

One offers a left turn on Richard Allen for those heading south and would not have a southbound exit ramp onto Saratoga. That’s I-DOT’s preferred design, as it provides more pedestrian safety. The second option rebuilds the south exit ramp to get to Romeo Garrett Avenue and moves the sidewalks.

The icy road conditions have trash and recycling collection a day late in Peoria. The Peoria Public Works Department says pick-up that usually would have happened Thursday will instead be Friday and Friday’s normal pick up will happen Saturday due the icy roads. Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Peoria Disposal Company via phone or website.
