New River Trail Segment to Open in Southern Peoria
Peoria’s Parks Division will open a new portion of the New River Trail on Friday, Oct. 10. The 2.25-mile segment of multiuse trail between Olive and Grand avenues is paved and features a push-button activated traffic signal at Peoria Avenue so users can cross without having to dodge traffic. Along the trail are rest areas, water fountains and benches. Design work is under way on an underpass that will link the new segment with the existing trail north of Grand Avenue.
