Anticipating a Growing Demand

Driven by significant investments from major companies, Will County has added more than 5,800 jobs in transportation logistics and manufacturing industries over the past five years.

Up to
1/3
of the country's freight movement is generated by, attracted to, or passes through our region.

The CenterPoint Intermodal Center – Joliet/Elwood serves as the nation’s largest inland port with $75 billion of goods moving through the facility annually. Will County is forecasted to remain at the center of that growth for years to come, with this facility continuing its role as the epicenter of the region’s immense transportation infrastructure.

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