Anticipating a Growing Demand

Driven by significant investments from major companies, Will County has added more than 5,800 jobs in the transportation logistics and manufacturing industries between 2015 and 2020.

The CenterPoint Intermodal Center – Joliet/Elwood serves as the nation’s largest inland port, with nearly $100 billion in goods moving through the facility annually. Will County is forecasted to remain at the center of America’s logistics growth for years to come, with this facility as the epicenter of the region’s immense transportation infrastructure.

The growing demand for transportation logistics means increased truck traffic and congestion on the local road network.

A Solution That Works for Everyone

The Houbolt Road Extension leverages the industry’s growth and invests in the community’s quality of life. This added route provides a more direct path for trucks to access I-80, taking traffic off local roads like Route 53 and giving them back to the families and our neighbors who use them every day.
