Construction to Begin on Dirksen Parkway

Dirksen Parkway reconstruction is scheduled to begin Monday, April 8, 2019. Dirksen Parkway is one of the main roads leading to General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport.

The full scope of the project consists of reconstructing the roadway to five lanes with new concrete pavement, curb and gutter, storm sewer, street lighting, and a 10-foot wide multi-use path that will connect to a sidewalk on Airport Road.

The initial work beginning on April 8, 2019, consists of placement of traffic control devices and construction of temporary pavement for use in future stages of construction. Motorists should expect lane closures and minor delays.

Major roadwork is required to be completed by December 6, 2019.
