Peoria Closed at I-44
By John Durkee
Tulsa, OK – Peoria is closed at I-44 for the next three months. The flood prevention project, coupled with the I-44 widening is taking a toll on business. Bob McKenzie owns CiCi's Pizza at 49th and Peoria.
He says the impact has already been felt when the on-and-off ramps were closed. Now, with Peoria closed, he says the impact could be huge.
McKenzie has tried to be pro-active by mailing his data base and sending out fliers to regular customers advising of the construction work
