Illinois Highway 23, Sycamore to DeKalb


There was a lot of excitement back in 1917 when the entire stretch between the two cities became a two-lane cement road.  They referred to it as the "cement road."

Then 25 years later, in 1942, it became a four lane paved road, quite a big thing back in those days.

I have had many entries about these two roads in those two years.

Today, there are few undeveloped parcels along the road and just about all of the big chain stores are along it.  It is a real horror to drive because there seems to be a stoplight every few blocks and they are long lights.  It has become a road that I would rather not drive if possible.
