Location & Transportation

Location & Transportation

Mokena, a thriving southwest suburban community, is fortunate to possess an enviable location in the midst of an extensive transportation infrastructure.

The community is nestled within the northeastern portion of Will County, just 27 miles outside of the Loop. The bustling La Grange Road corridor (U.S. Route 45) winds its way north-south along Mokena’s eastern border, providing an efficient connection to U.S. Route 30 to the south and Interstate 80 to the north. Both Route 30 and Interstate 80 offer a link to Interstate 57 to the east, while I-80 serves as the southwest suburbs’ first point of connection to Interstate 355, located just west of town.

Many commuters bypass the traffic of the region’s busy thoroughfares by taking advantage of the services of Metra rail. The public transit outlet operates two stations in Mokena – Mokena/Front Street and Mokena/Hickory Creek –both of which are situated along the Metra Rock Island District rail line. Riders reach downtown Chicago’s LaSalle Station within one hour.

The closest commercial airports include Chicago’s Midway International Airport (20 miles from Mokena) and O’Hare International Airport (30 miles from Mokena).
