Work Proceeds On Huntley Kreutzer Road Power Line
The Village of Huntley battled ComEd over placement of the line which it said would interfere whenever Kreutzer Road needs to be widened but the Illinois Commerce Commission finally ruled it was OK. The Kreutzer family is still in court fighting the decision. A ComEd spokesman Monday was unable to say why the ComEd was working on the line while it still lacks access to the entire right of way.
Currently, ComEd transmission lines serve the Gilberts, Algonquin, and North Huntley substations from only one direction. The new line would complete a loop connecting all three substations so each would be served from two directions. That way each one would have a power source form either side in case one of the transmission lines goes down.
