PEORIA — As of now, Prospect Road forms a T-type intersection at its northern terminus, Knoxville Avenue. But that three-way stoplight might become a four-way light soon.

Katie Kim, who oversees the Keller Station mixed-use development on the west side of Knoxville Avenue, wants to connect her property to Prospect Road at that intersection. Doing so isn’t a cut-and-dried procedure.

“There are many, many, many steps,” Kim said. “This is my first time doing a design for a stoplight. It’s definitely a learning experience.”

The proposed new entrance would be the second from Knoxville Avenue into Keller Station, an office/retail/restaurant complex whose first tenants opened in 2019.
