Looking Back to 1941: Buying the Right-Of-Way for the New DeKalb-Sycamore Road

From the March 19, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"County Treasurer Oscar N. Larson was authorized Saturday to make out $14,985 in checks on county funds for the purchase of the Route 23 right-of-way recently contracted for by the county with 40 property owners along the Sycamore-DeKalb road for the new four-lane highway between the two cities."

Built in 1941, still in use, but a full middle lane the whole length and more stoplights than you can count.  Not the road to make time on.

Lots and Lots of Traffic.  --RoadDog
