PEKIN, Ill. -- The City of Pekin announced Wednesday that Sheridan Road will be continued to be closed for approximately 3 weeks longer and will be reopened before the start of school.

City officials says the delay is due to weather delays and phasing of required construction activities taking place on Veterans Drive.

This closure is needed to ensure the safety of general motorist and construction crews working on the roadway.

The remainder of construction on Veterans Drive is scheduled to be complete by September.
