QUESTION: Our highways haven’t always had those numbers. For example, before the numbers were changed shortly after World War II, can you name today’s U.S. 136, Illinois 54, Interstate 55, U.S. 150 and Illinois 9?


ANSWER: U.S. 136 was Highway 119, Illinois 54 was Illinois 48, Interstate 55 was Route 4, U.S. 150 was Route 17 and Illinois 9 was still Illinois 9. In fact, it is Illinois 9 because it was the ninth highway developed in the state.
