PEKIN, Ill. -- The City of Pekin announced Monday that starting September 16, Front Street will be closed from Fayette Street due to construction associated with improvements to the Waste Water Treatment Plant.

Pekin officials say the closure will last approximately three months

The closure is needed so modifications can be made to a diversion chamber that combines two main sewer trunks into one main with the addition of a connection for a combination overflow bypass sewer that will be constructed later.

Overall construction for the Waste Water Treatment Plant project is schedule to be complete by summer of 2015.
