PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Crews from the city’s Public Works Department continue their work to redraw lines to allow forward, pull-in angle parking in Downtown Peoria.

According to City Hall, the work is expected to continue on Fulton Street, Southwest Madison Avenue, and Southwest Monroe Street.

Beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 16, due to slurry seal refinishing work, there will be no street parking in the following areas:

  • Fulton Street from Southwest Jefferson Street to Southwest Monroe Street
  • Southwest Madison Avenue from Fulton Street to Main Street
  • Southwest Monroe Street from Fulton Street to Main Steet

These restrictions will be in effect until 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 18. After 5 p.m., on-street parking will be available through the weekend.

Temporary-painted parking spaces should be in place for two weeks before permanent striping can be placed. Crews are expected to begin putting the permanent parking in place on Aug. 28.

Drivers should utilize forward, pull-in angle parking in applicable spaces. Drivers should also avoid bagged “no parking” meters as crews work to move and turn the meters.

The city is expected to share more parking and lane restrictions as work on the project continues.

The city urges drivers to be mindful of workers in the area and watch for bagged “No Parking” meters and that extra caution should be exercised.
