About 1,000 new jobs will be coming to Madison County with the opening of  two Amazon.com fulfillment centers in Edwardsville.  Located in the so-called "warehouse district," with facilities to be built in the Lakeview and Gateway Commerce Centers, Madison County Transit is announcing new routes to serve new employees. 

MCT Spokesman S.J. Morrison tells The Big Z the first location at Gateway Commerce Center opens later this month.
