Illinois State Route 17

Illinois route 17 runs across the state from New Boston on the Mississippi River south of the Quad Cities to the Indiana line just east of Shelburneville. Except for Kankakee, it avoids larger cities. The original route from the 1920s closely follows the current route from Lacon to the Indiana line. It did not exist west of Lacon until the 1930s, and it was extended to its current western terminus around 1940.
