The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that, weather permitting, all traffic on IL 8 in East Peoria will be shifted one lane to the south between Edgehill Ct. and Ember Ln. beginning Thursday.

The revised traffic pattern will allow for road construction on the north side of IL 8 and is expected to last until approximately mid-summer.

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 mid-November.
