Another State, Local and Federal boondoggle. This $32 million plus expenditure of borrowed money, still unfinished, will NOT attract a lot of new businesses nor will few people move into the lofts. Northbound traffic will seek difference routes as at least 2-3 times a day traffic moves at about 5 miles an hour. Of course, drivers will need to drive extra miles if they are trying to reach downtown. This expensive project is supposed to be good for business, residents and pedestrians.
Plenty of people are already pissed off about these happenings on Washington Street.
I'll stand by my predictions. I've only been wrong on one so far in 14 years.
Hope I'm wrong on this one.
Time will tell. Meanwhile, the City of Peoria streets, curbs and sidewalks continue to go downhill probably at an accelerated pace after this winter.
