A Solution That Works for Everyone

The Houbolt Road Extension will leverage the industry’s growth, and invest in the
community’s quality of life. The new route provides a more direct path for trucks to access 1-80, taking traffic off local roads like Route 53 and giving them back to the families and our neighbors who use them every day.

About the Houbolt Road Extension

A privately owned and operated tolled 1.5-mile roadway/bridge project. The project limits extend from the existing Houbolt Road/US 6 intersection south to the Schweitzer Road/Vetter Road intersection.

The project will create a new access point to facilitate the efficient flow of traffic and the safety of the motoring public.

Construction began in March 2020 and the project will be completed in Spring 2023.

The Houbolt Road Extension Joint Venture, LLC (or HRE-JV) is financing the design and construction of the project.

The Houbolt Road Extension JV, LLC is a business partnership between CenterPoint Properties and United Bridge Partners.

The HRE-JV will use an open road all-electronic toll system integrated with I-PASS. Read More

The HRE-JV is focused on advancing the Houbolt Road Extension project. We do not have any affiliation with any other bridge-related projects in Will County or the surrounding Joliet area.
