A Paved Road Between Sycamore and DeKalb in 1917

From the September 13, 2017, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"The large cement mixer to be used in the work on the cement road from the C, M. & G. crossing around the Electric Park corner and the pavement of Sycamore started work today and from now on the road will gradually near completion.

"When this road is finished that is now in course of construction there will be practically a paved street from Sycamore to DeKalb and it will be one of the best improvements imaginable."

That road is Illinois Highway 23 today.
