From the August 3, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."
These articles always deal with events around the time of the date of the MidWeek, only that many years ago. I have had quite a few blog entries on this road.
"Highway building crews were still engaged at noon today in grading the roadbed for the new DeKalb-Sycamore highway and workers were unable to state when the first concrete would be poured.
"The first slab will be laid at the Sycamore end of the road, where the high mixing machine has already been set up."
