The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that Mossville Road over Illinois 6 just north of Peoria will close Oct. 10. The closure is part of a project to rehabilitate the bridge and will last until mid-December. A detour will be posted.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.
