IDOT looking for fix erosion on Route 6

Posted by wlpo on May 16, 2014

A stretch of Route 6 in Peru between Ptak’s Funeral Home and Pulaski Square is sometimes called Bridge Street though it’s not a bridge. The road is on ground surrounded by an embankment that has erosion its north side.

The road was down to one lane Thursday while a crew with IDOT was performing pavement coring. Bruce Hucker of IDOT says they were getting information as engineers consider how to correct the erosion.

Crews with IDOT had the road down to one lane last Thursday so temporary repairs could be made.

Hucker says the road is safe, it’s just the soil on the embankment that’s washing away.
