EAST PEORIA — City officials have temporarily extended the area of West Washington Street closed to traffic for pavement replacement.

The road will be closed through Friday between Main Street and Spinder Drive, and closure times may be extended depending upon weather.

Only those going to the police and fire offices at the Public Safety Building — or first-responder vehicles leaving or returning to the building — are allowed past the "road closed" signs, and other motorists may be cited if they drive around the signs, East Peoria officials said.
