DeKalb County Transportation Back in 1914: The New State Aid Road

From the October 15, 2014, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois).

1914, 100 years ago.

**  The Sycamore city council has concluded to give the Woodstock-Interurban company another chance.

**  Since the state aid road opened a couple weeks ago it has been much frequented bu automobiles.  Somebody undertook the task to count the automobiles on Sunday that passed a given point, and when he got to over 300 he became tired and quit.

I think this new state aid road might be the current Illinois Highway 23 between Sycamore and DeKalb.
