IDOT Hosts Governor JB Pritzker Press Conference – Update on Houbolt Road Extension-I80 Project
Doug Pryor, Vice President of Economic Development with the Will County Center for Economic Development was among the speakers following Governor Pritzker’s update on these critical infrastructure projects. Doug thanked the Governor for his commitment to Will County and his ongoing emphasis on the importance of investing in infrastructure both here in Will County and around the state as we work to grow our local businesses and market Illinois to companies around the nation and the world.
Doug reinforced that reinvestment in the Will County infrastructure will allow us to continue to compete globally, recruiting companies like Lion Electric, which is well underway constructing North America’s largest all-electric school bus and medium duty truck manufacturing facility.
“Projects like Lion build on the long-standing manufacturing heritage of this region and provide an important foundation for future manufacturing competitiveness for Will County and for Illinois. Investment and support from the State and from the Governor’s office in our infrastructure allows us to keep growing jobs and investment while delivering workers and goods safely.”
