Joliet Zoning Board Reviews Hollywood Road Truck Stop Plans – Shaw Local


Two proposed truck stops along the future route of the Houbolt Road bridge will be submitted Thursday to the Joliet Zoning Appeal Board for review.

A Food N Fuel is planned for the northwest corner of Hollywood Road and Route 6.

Another truck stop is planned at the corner of Hollywood and Mound roads.

They are one of three truck stops being built between the Houbolt Road Bridge currently under construction and Interstate 80. The toll bridge is being built over the Des Plaines River to provide tractor-trailers a direct route between the I-80 and the CenterPoint Intermodal Center.

The bridge will land on Route 6 and Hollywood Road.

Hollywood Road goes from Route 6 to I-80 and becomes Houbolt Road on the north side of I-80.

A third truck stop with an unnamed mark is planned at the southeast corner of Route 6 and Hollywood.

The Food N Fuel planned for the northwest corner would have a convenience store, drive-thru food service and packaged alcohol sales, according to a staff report to the zoning board.

The plan includes a main building of 6,000 square feet and an additional commercial space of 800 square feet. There would be 10 fuel pumps for cars and five fuel lanes for trucks.

The developer is seeking the special use permit needed to build the Food N Fuel.

The developer of the Hollywood and Mound roads is requesting an extension to a special use permit issued in October.

The permit was granted on the condition that construction begin within 180 days.

A potential operator at the site backed out, but another company was lined up for the truck stop operation, according to a report from city staff.
