Motorists in Peoria County should be on the lookout for this big construction project next week.
Illinois Route 9 will close to all traffic just east of the intersection with U.S. Route 24 beginning on June 18. The pavement next to the Union Pacific railroad tracks will be reconstructed during this time.
Business access will be maintained during the project. The road should be reopen by June 26, weather permitting. A posted detour will redirect drivers to Interstate 474.
