Will County’s jobless rate down, job growth rising

Author: Editor

Will County is improving on all fronts – including jobless rates, job growth and business investments.

That was the message from John Greuling, president and CEO of the Will County Center for Economic Development, last week as he presented the nonprofit’s mid-year report to members of the Will County Board’s Executive Committee.

Experiencing an increase of 3.5 percent in job growth, Will County saw three times the increase Illinois did between June 2013 and June 2014, according to the CED report. Will also surpassed job growth in Cook and DuPage counties.

Pace adds additional ‘Bus on Shoulder’ routes on Interstate 55

Author: Editor

Heading into work Monday, Pace riders who commute to downtown Chicago may notice fewer stops – and a quicker commute.

To bring faster times and more direct services, Pace has split its Route 855 into three different routes, with No. 855 starting in Plainfield, No. 851 starting in South Bolingbrook and No. 850 starting in North Bolingbrook.

A ridership increase along Route 755 also led Pace officials to increase services and make slight schedule adjustments. Route 755, which starts in Plainfield, once ended at University of Chicago/Medical District, but now ends at Chicago’s Union Station.

Road ordinance repealed by Elwood Village Board

Author: Editor

The Elwood Village Board voted to repeal an ordinance passed May 21 instituting road restrictions designed to reduce the number of vehicles crossing the Union Pacific Railroad track at Walter Strawn Drive.

The action taken Wednesday night passed unanimously with no comment from trustees. President William Offerman and Trustee Francis “Bud” Jones were absent.

After the village instituted the changes in May, CenterPoint, APL and the Union Pacific Railroad argued successfully in federal court for a temporary restraining order.
