Donald L. Saltsman Honorary Parkway Unveiling

Aug 11, 2017

Join Peoria County Board Member Thomas O'Neill and Firefighters' Local 50 for the unveiling of the Donald L. Saltsman Honorary Parkway on Wednesday, August 16 at 9 a.m. on Airport Road near Limestone Community High School. Airport Road, from Dirksen Parkway to Pfeiffer Road, will carry the designation in honor of former Illinois State Representative Donald Saltsman. 

Mr. Saltsman served in the Illinois House of Representatives from 1981 to 1996. During his time in office, he was instrumental in obtaining the funding to build Airport Road. Mr. Saltsman was a firefighter for the City of Peoria from 1956-1984, and he was president of the Peoria Firefighters Union Local 50 for 12 years.

"Don Saltsman, in all his years as our representative, always worked hard for the people of his district and was a great supporter of all our unions," says Thomas O'Neill, Peoria County Board Member for District 17. 

Firefighters' Local 50 paid for the two signs, one at each end of Airport Road. They will be displayed for one year and then given to the Saltsman family.

Those attending the unveiling are asked to park in the Limestone High School parking lot, located at 4201 S Airport Rd, Bartonville, IL.
