Building the RecPlex was a challenge from day one. The location was very unique with the Illinois River to the East and railroad tracks to the West. There were also numerous obstacles, the most prominent being a railroad car that crews unearthed deep under the site. Crews also overcame Peoria’s third most severe winter in 110 years to finish the job on time.

“River City performed above and beyond our expectations. This project had many obstacles and would never been completed without River City Construction. I feel that strongly about it.”
