IDOT announced a detour is set up for southbound Route 29 traffic due to the water main break on Jefferson at Abington in Peoria. For Monday night and a portion of Tuesday, February 11th, southbound Route 29 traffic traveling toward Peoria from the north will be detoured to the McClugage Bridge to Route 116 in East Peoria. Starting Tuesday, likely mid day, non truck traffic on southbound Route 29 (Jefferson) in Peoria will take Jefferson to Van Buren to Adams Street , to Hayward Street, back to Jefferson. The portion of Adams Street from Hayward to Van Buren will be temporarily converted into two way traffic separated by barrels during this time. Illinois American Water crews will be working to repair the pavement at the location of the break which may take at least one week or longer to complete.
