These are maps of the detour route from Interstate 74 through East Peoria and Peoria when the seven-month closure of the Interstate 74 Murray Baker Bridge over the Illinois River begins. The closure will start March 29 and is expected to last until Oct. 31. The bridge is being closed for re-decking.
Interstate traffic will be routed through town and over the Bob Michel Bridge. Officials are advising residents to use either the McCluggage Bridge or the Cedar Street Bridge to cross the river. No work or lane closures will be occurring at either of those two bridges.
