PERU – Peru Mayor Scott Harl and others attended the ribbon cutting for the new roundabout Wednesday afternoon.   The project, which hopes to alleviate traffic issues on Peoria Street and Plank Road, is the first intersection of its kind in LaSalle County.   A fountain, which will be lit with multiple colors, is in the center of the roundabout.   Traffic was fully opened on Plank Road north and south, with the remaining roads to be opened once striping of the pavement is completed in the next week, weather permitting. The estimated $3.5 million dollar project took just under two years to complete.
