Water Main Break Closes Portion of Peoria's Main Street

Aug 8, 2018

Main Street in Peoria remains closed at Maplewood to N Cooper Avenue or Parkside Drive.

A water main break early Wednesday meant a large portion of the road needed to be removed. Illinois American Water crews replaced about 10 feet of water main. That work was completed about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.


Crews worked to reduce the scope of the road close by the weekend with the remainder of the road restoration anticipated by Tuesday.


Access to the Bradley University Main Street Parking Deck is also shut off as a result of that main break and necessary road restoration.
