PEORIA, Ill. -- Reconstruction is on its way for parts of University Street. Peoria's Public Works Department wants the public's input on the final design.

The University Street reconstruction will take place between Nebraska Avenue and Forrest Hill Avenue.

There are three design proposals for the project that includes eliminating the center turn lane, making wider sidewalks, and installing bike lanes.

An informational meeting will be held Wednesday, July 10 at 6 p.m at the University United Methodist Church.

Plans of when construction could begin will also be discussed during that meeting.
