Griffin Avenue Extension Opens

Representatives from the City of Pekin, the Avanti's Dome, and the Pekin Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting today to officially open the Griffin Avenue extension. The cost of the road was just over $1 million dollars and paid for by the City of Pekin and the Avanti's Dome.  The extension runs from the dome to Veterans Drive. It will provide improved access to the dome, and create development opportunities near the intersection with Veterans Drive.  You can see more pictures from this and other chamber events at
