“We’re thrilled that our new travel center will serve the Joliet community, as well as contribute to the local economy,” Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam said in the release. “We hope local residents and those traveling through the Will County area and along Interstate 80 and U.S Highway 53 will enjoy the convenience and amenities of our new Pilot Travel Center.”

The new facility at 40 E. Laraway Road is Pilot Flying J’s 44th location in Illinois, and it is expected to contribute $3.8 million annually in state and local tax revenues, according to the release.
