Two options for Pioneer Parkway intersection

PEORIA, Ill. -- Options were presented for the first phase of the Pioneer Parkway extension Tuesday afternoon.

The non-funded project has been in the planning stages for many years.

City officials are designing the first phase of the project which would extend the road from Allen Road to Villa Lake Drive.

The public helped the city narrow down intersection options to two.

They will either put in a two-lane roundabout or a traditional signalized intersection.

The final project would extend the road to Trigger Road and add a new interchange at Illinois Route 6.

Council members said they will be looking for grants in the near future to fund the work.

A start date has not been set for construction.
