The village of Romeoville announced two new restaurants, a hotel and a gas station are coming to the southwest corner of Weber Road and Normantown Road as work on the Weber/Interstate 55 interchange nears completion.

Parts & Labor will be a 6,000-square-foot sit-down restaurant serving brunch, lunch, dinner and dessert according to a news release. It will offer craft beers and spirits from local brewers and distillers.

Dale Lewis, the owner of Burger Rebellion in Crest Hill, will build the restaurant. Lewis is a restauranteur with 15 years of experience. He’s also a 1984 graduate of Romeoville High School.

“New restaurants are always at the top of everyone’s wish list,” said Mayor John Noak in a statement. “It is very exciting to have two new concepts coming to Romeoville, including a sit down concept from Romeoville Alum Dale Lewis.”

The Slice Factory also submitted a letter of intent for a restaurant in the plan, a 4,000-square-foot space. The pizza restaurant already has nine locations throughout the Chicago area.

The area will also feature the Hilton Tru hotel, a four-story, 100-room building providing additional lodging for visitors coming to town, according to a news release.

QuikTrip, a gas station and convenience store, will round out the development plan.

The development will have an access point on Normantown Road, including a new traffic signal and a right in, right out access point to Weber Road. These two access points will be connected by an internal road that will provide access to all of the businesses.

An internal pedestrian network is also proposed to connect to the multi-use path being installed along Weber Road.

Construction could begin as soon as the spring of 2022
