Traffic Jams Expected At Country Shows

If you'll be picking up someone from the country shows at Ravina On The Lakes this weekend, be prepared to deal with lots of traffic when the last show of the night is over.

The Peoria County Sheriff's Department and Peoria Police will be closing the intersection at Orange Prairie Road and Charter Oak Road to inbound traffic around 11:00p.m. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday until the crowds from the show have cleared the area.

Orange Prairie Road will be open at its intersection with, and north of, Timberedge Drive.

Police suggest coming up with an alternate pick up location, or using the free shuttles that will run throughout the weekend from Country Inn and Suites and Wingate Hotel near the Shoppes at Grand Prairie. The shuttles will be available from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. each day.
