The planned closure of VFW Road from 5th Street west to the railroad crossing in Pekin starting April 28th has been suspended due to delays associated with necessary railroad permits and forecasted weather. A revised closure schedule will be announced at a later date. Meanwhile, work will continue along Route 29 intersection so the city encourages motorists to use caution. Access to the local business including Old Heritage Gardening Center, F.L. Smidth, Coparts and the other business located along VFW will continue to have access from Route 29 on the existing roadway. Additional directional signage will be provided to assist drivers and will remain throughout construction.
