Will County is one of the nation’s largest transportation hubs, with demand for freight projected to double in the Chicago Metropolitan area over the next 20 years. The Houbolt Road Extension is a privately financed 1.5-mile long extension of Houbolt Road from US 6 to Schweitzer Road with a new bridge over the Des Plaines River. This new access route for trucks is the result of years of collaboration and thoughtful planning, and will ensure the industry remains a driver of jobs and revenue for Will County while protecting our community.

The partnership has launched a website at houboltroadextension.com for updates and information on the extension project.

The Illinois Department of Transportation on Tuesday released a $21.3 billion five-year highway improvement plan with five major projects in Will County.

The plan includes $3.2 billion in spending for fiscal year 2021, but IDOT warned that funding could be curtailed because of the impact of COVID-19 on the economy.

The multi-year plan includes long-sought projects, including replacement of the Interstate 80 bridges over the Des Plaines River and new Interstate 55 interchanges in the Plainfield and Romeoville areas.

John Greuling, president and CEO of the Will County Center for Economic Development, said he was disappointed that IDOT isn’t farther along on engineering on some projects but added there is a lot to look forward to, including the I-80 improvements.

“We could see a new bridge and a rebuilt I-80 from Ridge Road in Minooka to Route 30 in New Lenox by 2026,” Greuling said.
