A new traffic plan was revealed to the public last week by the city of Peru, detailing an upcoming intersection that will make life easier and safer at the 38th Street shopping intersection, north of the Peru Mall.
According to the plan, two left-hand turns would be restored to the road, and Venture Drive would be moved about 150 feet westward, so that it intersects with 38th Street at the location where the entrance to a strip mall currently resides.
Local drivers and local business owners received the news well at a Tuesday meeting, responding with almost universal praise. This plan would certainly make shopping excursions safer, especially during busy shopping times of the year, such as the winter holidays.
We at Coronet Dodge are glad to hear that the Venture Drive traffic plan will continue to make our city a safer and more efficient place to drive, shop, and live. What do you think of this idea? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
