The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that westbound I-74 will be reduced to one lane from just east of the Murray Baker Bridge in East Peoria to just west of the overpass at Jefferson Street in Peoria this week. The lane reduction will be in effect Wednesday, April 16th and Thursday, April 17th from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.

The lane closure is necessary for crews to inspect the overpasses at Jefferson Street and Adams Street.

Homefield Energy to Continue as Morton's Aggregation Supplier

Apr 15, 2014

Download: News-Release-Contract-for-2014-2016.pdf

The Village of Morton will enter a new contract period with electric power supplier Homefield Energy later this year.  The Village’s first aggregation contract with Homefield will end with the June billing cycle, and the new contract will take effect with June meter readings payable in July.  The new 24-month agreement with Homefield locks in a rate of 4.66 cents per kilowatt hour and mandates that Homefield supply 50% of power from renewable sources or purchase renewable energy credits.

As the current contract period ends, residents will receive solicitations from other alternative energy suppliers in the mail, by phone and door-to-door.  Suppliers other than Homefield Energy are not associated with the Village’s municipal aggregation program.  Residents who wish to consider other suppliers should compare rates offered by these alternative providers to Homefield’s aggregation rate of 4.66 cents per kilowatt hour fixed for the duration of the 24-month contract.  Many electrical suppliers offer a variable rate including a low rate for a short introductory period.  When comparing, residents should ask if the rate is variable or fixed for the life of the contract.

All eligible Ameren and Homefield residential and small business customers will receive an “opt out” letter from Homefield in the latter part of April.  Customers who do not want to participate in aggregation with Homefield as their supplier should return the postage paid, self-addressed reply card to Homefield.  Customers who choose not to opt out will be charged the new Homefield rate on their bills for June meter readings.  Customers who have electric supply contracts with suppliers other than Ameren or Homefield will not receive opt out letters but may elect to participate in Morton’s aggregation program upon cancellation or expiration of their current power supply contracts.

For more information about Homefield Energy and the Village of Morton’s electric aggregation program, contact Homefield Customer Service at HomefieldCustCare@Dynegy.com or 866-694-1262.

Improving I-74/I-155 Project Update

Apr 9, 2014

The Illinois Department of Transportation announces that the left lane of eastbound I-74 and the right lane of westbound I-74 from I-474 to Morton Avenue will be closed during the following times: 

  • 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 9th through 6:30 a.m. Thursday, April 10th
  • 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 10th through 6:30 a.m. Friday, April 11th
  • 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 11th through 6:30 a.m. Saturday, April 12th

The lane closures are necessary to re-stripe the pavement markings on I-74 and to set a temporary barrier wall to allow work in the median. Travel delays are expected during this time. 

The overall project is the complete reconstruction of I-74 from Pleasant Hill Road to Morton Avenue in Tazewell County. The project is expected to be completed in 2015.
