The Illinois Department of Transportation said today, weather permitting, beginning Thursday motorists can expect daily closures of the ramp from eastbound US 150 (War Memorial Dr.) to southbound Knoxville Ave. and the ramp from northbound Knoxville Ave. to westbound War Memorial Dr. in Peoria.

A signed detour will be in place directing all re-routed traffic to the War Memorial Drive/Adams Street intersection where they will be routed back onto westbound War Memorial Dr.

The closures are necessary for patching, milling, resurfacing and curb replacement operations. These will be removed while no work is ongoing.

Message boards will be placed in multiple places in advance of the Knoxville intersection alerting motorists of the closure(s).

This project is expected to continue until November.
