Projected Completion Date
In late February 2013, work began on the site of the new City Center Campus facility. For the duration of the project, the following things will occur:
• Webster Street will be closed during construction
• The parking spaces directly adjacent and east of the current campus will be closed (the full college lot, however, will remain open)
In addition, the City of Joliet will be conducting sewer work on Chicago Street, which will cause intermittent lane closures from the corner of Chicago and Cass Streets to Webster Street.
JJC appreciates everyone’s patience and understanding during the construction process. The map below illustrates what will be affected by construction:

The $58 million new City Center Campus, located at the corner of Chicago and Webster Streets in downtown Joliet, will include space for the following programs: workforce development, GED/ESL training, adult education and culinary arts.
The six-story, 96,000 square-foot building will include a light-filled, glass-enclosed lobby designed to welcome students and visitors to the facility, in addition to a new restaurant located adjacent to Chicago St. for the public to access.
The design includes many sustainable technologies and is also targeting LEED Silver certification though the United States Green Building Council.
