“We have depended on transportation companies and truck drivers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to keep the supply chain running,” Joyce said. “This new location will maximize the facility’s traffic flow and efficiency to keep this essential industry operating smoothly.”

The new facility is located at 111 Village Square Shopping Plaza in Bradley. The current facility at 1111 Blatt Road is scheduled to close at the end of business on Thursday, Feb. 11.

After Feb. 11 and before the new facility opens on Feb. 23, customers are encouraged to visit the nearest driver services facilities, including:

South Holland (CDL facility): 41 W. 162nd St.
Joliet: 210 S. Joyce Road

For customers who decide to visit a facility, masks are required. Customers are advised to come prepared to wait outside because, due to social distancing, the number of people allowed inside a facility at one time is limited.
