Traffic signal work set early Sunday

The Illinois Department of Transportation announced that replacement of a traffic signal mast arm at the intersection of Main Street (Illinois 29) and Washington Street in East Peoria will begin in the early morning hours of Sunday, April 14.

Work will begin at 2 a.m. to replace the mast arm, which was damaged in a crash, and will require intermittent lane closures at the intersection. Traffic will be controlled by four-way flashing red lights during the work, which is expected to wrap up by 10 a.m. Sunday.

Motorists can expect delays and should allow extra time for trips through this area. To avoid the work area, when feasible, use of alternate routes should be considered. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to changed conditions and signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits, refrain from using mobile devices and be alert for workers and equipment.

DRIVER INVOLVED IN DEATH OF DEKALB COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE DEPUTY RELEASED FROM JAIL WITH PRETRIAL RELEASE CONDITIONS.
Nathan P. Sweeney of DeKalb, IL who was arrested last week for Reckless Homicide and DUI in connection with the Line of Duty Death of DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) Deputy Christina Musil was released from custody this afternoon after the Court set pretrial release conditions.
Obviously, we are very disappointed that Sweeney was released despite the Dekalb County States’ Attorney request to detain. This evaluation was made under the Pretrial Fairness Act, which went into effect 9/18/23, that was a part of the SAFE T Act passed in January 2021.
