PEORIA, Ill. -- One of Peoria's busiest intersections is set to reopen on Monday.

Workers are putting the finishing touches on the Main and University intersection.

After a massive water main break last fall, city leaders decided to completely overhaul the roadway in an effort to make it safer for pedestrians.

Slightly raised pavement will slow vehicle traffic through the intersection and vibrant landscaping will make it more inviting.

A grand opening ceremony is scheduled for Monday at 2 p.m.
