Looking Back to 1941: Nearing Completion of Sycamore End of DeKalb-Sycamore Road

From the September 21, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1941, 75 Years Ago.

"The DeKalb-Sycamore highway paving crew was at the Electric Park corner today, every attempt possible being made to reach the Sycamore end of the road by this evening.

"It was doubted, however that the stretch from the park corner to Sycamore could be laid this afternoon."

The construction of the DeKalb-Sycamore four lane highway was a huge news story back then.

I went to college at NIU in DeKalb and had never heard of an Electric Park, so will have to look it up for the next post.
