Village of Bradley…The Place to Be for Opportunity
Incorporated in 1892, the Village of Bradley is proud of its past and now focused on its future. It’s a community of almost 16,000 people located just south of the Chicago Metropolitan Area in the scenic Kankakee River Valley of Illinois. It is part of a larger urban area that includes the City of Kankakee, the Village of Manteno and the Village of Bourbonnais in Kankakee County.
Bradley is home to a variety of local businesses and nationally recognized brands, including an offering of hotel accommodations. Economic development activity is occurring along Route 50/Kinzie Avenue, the Village’s primary north-south commercial corridor. An interchange with Interstate 57 provides access to I-80 which connects to I-355 and I-55.
