From IDOT: The traffic pattern at the Pinecrest Drive/Interstate 74 work zone in East Peoria has changed. Motorists traveling north on Pinecrest are now being directed to use the new pavement in the right lane. Southbound traffic is not affected. The Pinecrest ramps from I-74 are now controlled by stop signs, and Pinecrest traffic is no longer controlled by signals.
This new pattern will be in place for about a month and is necessary to build a concrete median separating north- and southbound traffic on Pinecrest. Occasional lane closures on I-74 will still be necessary.
Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area.
