The Joliet City Council approved a resolution amending the economic incentive agreement between the City of Joliet and Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores, Inc. The controversial truck stop was approved for I-80 and Briggs back in 2018. The incentives for the project were originally estimated at $2.5 million but the project has seen several delays and costs have expanded as a result.  The official vote was 5 to 3 to approve.
