Adams Street and Jefferson Avenue Improvements Public Meeting July 6

Proposed improvements include converting Adams Street and Jefferson Avenue to two-way traffic

The City of Peoria will hold an open house informational public meeting regarding proposed improvements to Adams Street and Jefferson Avenue in downtown Peoria from 4-6 pm on Wednesday, July 6 at the Gateway Building, 200 NE Water St.

The proposed improvements include converting Adams Street and Jefferson Avenue to two-way traffic. The limits on Adams Street are from the existing two-way traffic at Walnut Street to Hamilton Boulevard. Jefferson Avenue limits are from Walnut Street to Fayette Street.

Intersection improvements also include corner bump-outs to shorten the pedestrian crossing distance and new cantilever traffic signals to improve visibility. Striped bike lanes will be added in the existing direction of travel. The existing pavement will also be milled and overlaid. This is a federally funded project.

The meeting will be conducted in an open house format. Attendees may arrive anytime between 4-6 pm, as there will be a continuous audiovisual presentation. Attendees are encouraged to discuss the project with team members and review exhibits.

Representatives of the City of Peoria and Hanson Professional Services, the city’s engineering consultant, will be available to discuss the project. City representatives will address topics such as the need for the project, the design alternatives under consideration, right-of-way acquisition, and the tentative construction schedule. Preliminary reports, including environmental documents and an engineering analysis with drawings, maps, and aerial photography, will be available for viewing during the meeting.

All persons interested in this project are invited to attend this meeting. The meeting room is accessible to persons with a disability. Persons with a disability who plan on attending this meeting and need special accommodations are encouraged to set up those arrangements by June 30.
