Will County

Will County is located in the northern part of Illinois and is one of the fastest growing counties in the United States. The county seat of Will County is Joliet. Founded in 1836, today Will County is a major hub for roads, rail and natural gas pipelines.

Today Will County is gaining increasing national attention because of its standing as an Inland Port. Not only is the county crisscrossed by six class I railroads and four interstates but it also contains major intermodal facilities. It should be remembered however, that Will County and its region have always benefited from major transportation infrastructure projects. The Illinois and Michigan Canal which opened in 1848 connected the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico helping to establish the Chicago area as a major transportation center before the railroad age.

Joliet is also the home of The Chicagoland Speedway that hosts the NASCAR Sprint Cup and is itself part of a world-class motorsports complex that includes the Route 66 Raceway and the NHRA-affiliated 1/4-mile drag strip. The Speedway is the largest sports facility in Illinois occupying more than 1,300 acres and seating 75,000 fans.
