The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) announces that traffic will be reduced to one lane on IL 8 (Washington St.) between Howard St. and Campus Ave. in East Peoria from today through Friday.

Flaggers will be present to control traffic. This lane reduction is scheduled for daytime hours.

The associated project consists of construction of five lanes of concrete pavement, storm sewer, retaining walls, new sidewalks, and new driveways from Oakwood Rd. to east of Sunrise Ave. on IL 8.

The roadway portion of the project is expected to be completed by November 15, 2011.
