Swords Avenue Bridge Reopened, Caution for Motorists Continued

The Peoria County Highway Department has finished the rehabilitation of the Swords Avenue bridge in West Peoria; the bridge is now open again for use. Final pavement markings will be completed later this week conditions permitting, so motorists are still advised to use caution while that work is finished.

Work began on Swords Avenue the week of June 6 after having been delayed from starting earlier due to material availability, but the project was still completed earlier than anticipated with the original ending goal being November 4. The project was made possible through the State’s Rebuild Illinois funds for a cost of $1,517,557.

The Highway Department thanks the public for their patience during this construction project. Please contact the department at (309) 697-6400, x0 with questions.
