Peoria Street Crews Treat Slick Spots

A little snow overnight and flurries Thursday morning made for a few slick spots in Peoria.

Sie Maroon, Deputy Director of Peoria Public Works, says that street crews did pre-treat overpasses and bridge decks Wednesday night as a precaution.

“We’re keeping an eye out on the overpasses and the hills. Those are the only trouble spots that we’ve run into,” said Maroon.

He said the primary routes were in good condition as of early Thursday.

“They may start to frost up a bit as the temperature hovers around freezing. The side streets and residential areas may have a little frost on them, but nothing that would warrant treatment,” said Maroon.

Maroon said crews will continue to monitor roads throughout the day Thursday, but are not expecting any big problems.

The traffic collision alert for the City of Peoria has been canceled.

Peoria citizens that were involved in vehicle crashes, where no one is injured and all vehicles are drivable, should exchange information and report the accident in person to the Peoria Police Department at 600 SW Adams Street, within 36 hours after the end of the alert.

Note:  All parties involved in the accident must be present in order to file the report with the Police Department.

The Peoria County Sheriff’s Office has issued a traffic collision alert for Peoria County.

Citizens that are involved in vehicle crashes, where no one is injured, should exchange information and report the accident in person to the records bureau at the Peoria County Sheriff’s Office at 301 N Maxwell Road, as soon as reasonably possible, but within 48 hours of the conclusion of the alert.
