Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home.

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

Will County Division of Transportation Hosting Public Meetings in December for Wilmington-Peotone Road Study

The Will County Division of Transportation (DOT) is holding two public information meetings about the future of Wilmington-Peotone Road, between Interstate 55 and Drecksler Road.

The public information meetings are part of a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study being conducted on the 22-mile stretch of roadway between Wilmington and Peotone. The open-house style meetings will allow residents to review information on the roadway, including challenges and possible improvements, and provide feedback. The two public meeting dates are:

  • December 6 (4-7 p.m.): Wilmington City Hall – 1165 S Water St, Wilmington, IL 60481
  • December 13 (4-7 p.m.): Peotone High School – 605 W North St, Peotone, IL 60468

The Wilmington-Peotone Road PEL Study will help the Will County DOT identify, analyze, and plan for the corridor’s future and accomplish the following goals:

  • Understand the existing and future travel demand.
  • Provide efficient east-west mobility for all users throughout the corridor.
  • Develop a corridor that can handle travel demand in a safe manner to support the economic vitality of the county.

Public comments can be made either in person at one of the public information meetings, or online at www.wilmingtonpeotonestudy.com. Comments can be submitted directly through a form submission, or through an interactive map of the project area, so concerns and comments can be tagged to a location along the corridor.

The meetings will be accessible to individuals with disabilities. Anyone needing special assistance should contact Will County DOT by email at ckupkowski@willcountyillinois.com or by phone at (815) 727-8476.
