PEORIA, Ill. – Drivers heading into Peoria on Wednesday and Thursday may want to avoid the Murray Baker Bridge.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane on Interstate 74 from just east of the Murray Baker Bridge to just west of the Jefferson Street overpass.

The lane closure will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m. both days.

The Illinois Department of Transportation says crews will be inspecting the overpasses at Jefferson and Adams.
