Peru officials taking another look the Venture Drive and 38th Street intersection

Posted by wlpo on November 25, 2014

You’ve had two years to get used to the redesigned intersection at Venture Drive and 38th Street in Peru. Do you think it needs to change again?

Traffic flow through the busy intersection near Dairy Queen and Hobby Lobby was reconfigured to prevent cars from backing up onto Route 251. It’s a strategy that’s worked but many shoppers and business managers are frustrated.

City officials are ready to come up with a better plan. Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says they’re presenting a plan to businesses so they can come up with a final plan.

The presentation is scheduled for 6:30pm Tuesday, December 2 in the Wren Community Room at Peru City Hall. City Engineer Eric Carls will lead the presentation.

Peru Police share driving tips for the start of the school year

Posted by wlpo on August 19, 2014

You might have a lot on your mind when bringing your kids to school, but don’t let that stop you from slowing down and paying attention.  The first day of school for Peru Public Schools is Wednesday. Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says you’ll see marked police cars in the morning and afternoon as officers trying to get the new school year off to a safe start.

Remember, when you’re in a school zone, the speed limit is 20 miles-per-hour. Bernabei says the fines are more severe if you’re caught speeding in a school zone.

Eventually the police officers will trade their marked cars for unmarked cars to make sure you’re following the rules.
