TERRA Engineering provided civil, planning, and public involvement services for the design and construction of the Washington Street Streetscape in Peoria, Illinois. Reflecting the city’s goals outlined in their 2002 ‘Heart of Peoria’ plan, the design aims to transform Washington Street into a safer, more attractive facility for pedestrians and motorist alike. The Washington Street improvements include wider sidewalks, on-street-parking, planters, decorative lighting, and other pedestrian amenities to better link downtown with Peoria’s riverfront. Terra Engineering is also involved in the closely related Warehouse District TIGER II project that will improve local side streets throughout the Peoria’s Warehouse District. Terra maintains two websites to educate and involve the public in the ongoing design and construction of the two projects.
