A Peoria County bridge that closed for safety reasons in 2016 is now back open to traffic.
The Peoria County Highway Department announced the Lancaster Road Bridge reopened Monday night, after shutting down for construction on May 18, 2016. The highway department wants to remind drivers that the speed limit is 50 mph.
However, delays and closures may not be out of the question in the future. Tree planting in the Spring may cause periodic lane closures. To see a previous version of this story, click here.
