Peoria Plans Extension To Pioneer Parkway
A major extension of a popular Peoria intersection is in the works.
Peoria City Councilman Casey Johnson Thursday night met with residents to discuss the future extension of Pioneer Parkway. The non-funded project has been in the planning stages for several years.
City officials said they are now designing the first phase of the project which would extend the road from Allen Road to Villa Lake Drive.
Johnson tells News Partner News 25 that the final project would extend the road to Trigger Road and add a new interchange at Illinois Route 6, and that the city will be looking for grants soon to fund the project.
