Water street

Demolition of Riverfront Village at the foot of Main Street in Peoria will now begin in December at the earliest. It has housed various businesses over the past two decades. The City of Peoria owns the raised structure and plans to develop a park in its place.

The Peoria Planning and Zoning Commission is recommending approval of elements for the proposed River Trail apartment project.  

Water street in Peoria will be closed at the intersection of State Street for road work starting Monday August 25th through October.
