PEORIA, Ill. -- Starting Tuesday, October 9, construction crews will close a portion of Fulton Street so heavy equipment can utilize the area near the parking deck.
The lane closure will be in effect on section of road between Monroe and the alley that separates the parking deck from the Sacred Heart Church.
This closure is necessary in order for the parking deck crane to utilize right-of-way to complete construction of the outside walls of the new deck. All but an 18' stretch of pavement closest to the Civic Center will be closed.
There will be no parking on Fulton alongside the theater and drivers will not be able to travel northwest on Fulton past the alley.
Traffic will be allowed to travel in one southeast-bound lane. This lane will periodically be closed as well for deliveries of parking deck segments and disassembly of the crane.
During these events, CORE will provide traffic flaggers to control traffic. This situation is expected to last approximately two weeks.
