Peru moving ahead with another Venture Drive realignment

Posted by wlpo on May 2, 2016

The city of Peru is taking another stab at making the Venture Drive and 38th Street intersection more convenient.

Universal Asphalt in La Salle will realign the much argued about intersection once again for $560,000. Plans are to move Venture Drive about 170 feet to the west so that it intersects with 38th Street in what is now the southwest part of the Hobby Lobby parking lot. When the realignment is done, you’ll be able to turn left onto 38th Street from Venture Drive unlike now where you can only turn right. The orange pylons at the intersection will also be gone.

Construction could start in about a month with the widening of 38th Street north of the Peru Mall.
