PEORIA, Ill. -- The Illinois Department of Transportation has shut down the southbound lanes of Knoxville Avenue from Nebraska to Richmond.

Those lanes should be closed for about two weeks. Southbound traffic on Knoxville will use the center turn lane on that stretch.

Utility crews are working in the area to complete sanitary sewer repair work.

Meanwhile, the Main and University construction project will expand its reach this week.

Starting Tuesday, Columbia Terrace from University to Sheridan will be closed to through traffic. Moss Avenue from Western to MacArthur Highway will also be closed.

Those closures are all a part of the Main and University improvement project.

Last September, a water main broke in that area and permanent repairs are being made now.
