MacArthur Highway between Moss Avenue and West Romeo B. Garrett Avenue will be closed starting next week through the end of the month. Illinois American Water is installing about 100 feet of water main on M-L-K Drive. The relocation is related to the upcoming bridge replacement. Detour routes will be posted. Motorists are encourage to avoid the area.

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.
