Intersection closed for 2 weeks

PEORIA -- The intersection of 91st and Northern avenues was closed in all directions Friday morning due to a sewer line break. That closure is expected to remain in place for the next two weeks.

Drivers in all directions are being forced to make right turns only at the intersection.

Police were suggesting people use Glendale and Olive avenues as east/west alternates, and 83rd Avenue, 99th Avenue and Loop 101 as north/south alternates.

Mike Tellef, spokesman for the Peoria police and fire departments, said traffic to businesses at 91st and Northern avenus will be allowed.

A large amount of construction equipment will be in that area during the repairs, so Tellef was advising drivers to avoid the intersection if at all possible.
