Illinois State Route 137

Illinois 137 goes from Grayslake to Winthrop Harbor in Lake County following a "J" shaped route. Most of the north-south section follows Sheridan Road, but part of it is on the short Nimitz Expressway in Waukegan. Most of the remainder follows Buckley Road. Route 137 connects Illinois 83 and Wisconsin STH-32. The original routing of Illinois 137 was a short spur east of route 1 to Saint Francisville near the Indiana line.
