US 50

US 50 enters Illinois south of St. Louis, Missouri and exits by Vincennes, Indiana running between I-64 and I-70. US 50 closely follows its original routing, but it has been rerouted a mile or two north or south in many locations. Illinois 250, for example, is an old routing of US 50. Around St. Louis, it follows I-64 and I-255 into Missouri.

There has been talk of widening US 50 across Illinois over the years. It remains to be seen if or how much of the road might be widened.

US 50 has passed through Illinois since 1926 when the route was commissioned. It currently goes between Ocean City, Maryland and West Sacramento, California.
