Illinois State Route 78

Illinois route 78 goes from the Wisconsin line down to Jacksonville in western Illinois. The road has quite a few jogs and multiplexes and passes through Kewanee and Canton before ending in Jacksonville's northwest side. The route pretty much lines up with Illinois 267 which begins in Jacksonville and goes down south to Godfrey. The road ranges from minor to relatively major in various places in its 200+ mile length.
