East Peoria public works department takes on twenty street maintenance projects

Local News

PEORIA, Ill. — The East Peoria Public Works Department is taking on 20 street maintenance projects and two road sections to be overlaid this summer.

The road maintenance is creating closures and lane reductions around the area, causing headaches for drivers.

“I’ve actually been penalized for work here because of the road construction, and sometimes you have a delay in traffic where it’s a complete stop,” said Tavarion Aikens.

The Illinois Department of Transportation also lists several road construction zones in the area.

WMBD has reached out to the East Peoria Public Works Department Director Dennis Barron and did not hear back.
