Looking Back: Rebuilding the DeKalb-Sycamore Road Back in 1941

From the Jan. 13, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois).

1941, 75 years ago:  "Many have asked in the past few days when work would start on the rebuilding of the Sycamore-DeKalb road (Ill. Route 23).  Only a vague answer can be given.  In the first place attention is given to the fact that the state government is in a transition stage and funds for road building must be officially allocated for particular projects before anything can be done."

I imagine this involved widening it to four lanes.  It is today a very congested stretch of road.
