The long, torturous, 20-year saga of this branch line becoming a hiking/biking trail has ended.
 
According to the Peoria Journal Star, the trackage is finally being pulled up so the conversion process can begin.
 
The line originated in Peoria and served industries on the northwest side of Peoria, Peoria Heights and continuing northwest past Dunlap.

There is a listing of related articles, too.
