IL Rt 9 on Peoria Co. side of IL river bridge @ Pekin
On IL Rt. 9, on the Peoria Co. side (west) of the Illinois River bridge @ Pekin, IL. As you travel West, there is a side road exit on the RH (north) side about 1/4 mi. past the bridge. The speed limit is 55mph, but the bridge is highly arched, and as you go downhill you will gain speed unless you use the brakes. A Pekin City police officer often sits there in a background of trees and brush where he can monitor cars both entering, or leaving Pekin on Rt. 9.
Lately, I have even seen him on Sunday mornings as I travel to church.
