Monday was the start of street construction around the new Glen Oak School. Completion is expected on or around August 10, 2010.
The City of Peoria will be setting up a storefront office on Wisconsin Ave. next to the bait shop during this project, to address any resident concerns. There are three civil engineers working this project, who you may call regarding any concerns and/or questions:
Scott Reeise - 494-8818
Jim Lancaster - 208-7289
Ron Camp - 303-8654
Each street re-design is expected to take 1 1/2 to 2 months to be completed. Work will start at the intersection of Republic and Maryland on sewer issues, with Maryland being the first street to be re-done.
Traffic will primarily be re-routed to McClure Ave. and Nebraska Ave. When Wisconsin Ave. is closed to traffic, city buses will be using Arcadia Ave. to reach the bus stop at Kroger.
