Having just visited the muddy, muddy Rock Island Trail north of Peoria, I found myself wishing, again, that it was paved. But there’s a downside to paving. In the case of East Peoria’s River Trail of Illinois, it’s four weeks of downtime for maintenance, just in time for spring.
Here’s a link to the story from the East Peoria Times Courier.
UPDATE: More info from the Fon du Lac Park District here.
