CenterPoint Properties is proud to support the enhancement of transportation opportunities in and around Will County, especially as it pertains to job creation and development opportunities related to the Illiana Expressway. Considering CenterPoint’s ongoing development activities within the CenterPoint Intermodal Center-Elwood/Joliet, CenterPoint recognizes the importance of collaborating with State, County and municipal agencies to create jobs for Illinois residents, and improve and reduce transportation costs by enhancing the expressways and major thoroughfares into and out of Illinois.
Will County’s strategic location, with access to both I-55 and I-80, is fundamental in the effective and efficient distribution of commodities nationwide. With the development of the Illiana Expressway, which could serve as a relief valve for thousands of trucks each day, CenterPoint believes the alternate east-west corridor between I-55 and I-65 could create a more efficient supply chain in the movement of goods and help drive business to Illinois.
CenterPoint’s continued support for local union labor, enhanced infrastructure to ensure safe passage, and supply chain efficiency is of unparalleled importance to the company.
