PEORIA, Ill. -- The City of Peoria announced Monday that beginning March 12 at 7:00 am, Washington Street from State Street to Liberty Street will be closed in both directions.

The closure is due to reconstruction as a part of the Washington Street/Warehouse District Infrastructure Improvements Project. The street closure is anticipated to last until December 15, 2013.

Motorists should use Adams Street and Jefferson Street as detour routes. Access to Water Street and the Riverfront is available from State Street and Liberty Street.
