Light It Up - The Murray Baker Bridge


To light the Murray Baker (I-74) Bridge spanning from Peoria to East Peoria, IL using state-of-the-art full spectrum LED lights and to create a sustainability strategy that ensures the success of the project while establishing a revenue source that addresses the beautification needs of our region. 


To make great progress in the Heart of Illinois by creating a vibrant downtown area. This new visual display will play as the backdrop to our cities and stand out in the night sky, further cementing the Murray Baker Bridge as an iconic structure in our region. 


We urge the City of Peoria, City of East Peoria, IDOT, Peoria and Tazewell Counties along with all other stakeholders currently connected with the Murray Baker (I-74) bridge project to think proactively and take the lighting system to the next level. By adding this lighting system it will transform the Murray Baker Bridge into a massive canvas with the ability to reflect special occasions such as holidays, events or local sports team wins.
