PEORIA, Ill -- The Illinois Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that eastbound traffic on IL 8 in Washington between Legion Road and Summit Drive will be shifted north onto the new pavement on December 3.

IDOT says that westbound traffic is currently on the new pavement and all traffic will remain on the north lanes through the winter and 2013 construction season. The traffic shift is associated with the roadway reconstruction project, widening Washington Road to five lanes.

IDOT also says that the roadway portion of this project is expected to be completed by November 2013.
