Route descriptionEdit

 
IL 107 in Griggsville

Illinois 107 begins at an interchange with Interstate 72, U.S. Route 36, and U.S. Route 54 in Pike County; this interchange also serves as US 54's northern terminus. Illinois 107 heads northeast from the interchange and passes through Griggsville. The route heads north from Griggsville before turning northwest and passing Perry. After a junction with Illinois Route 104 north of Perry, Illinois 107 enters Brown County and heads north toward Mt. Sterling. The road terminates at a junction with Illinois 99 in southern Mt. Sterling. Illinois 107 is a rural two-lane surface road for its entire length.

HistoryEdit

SBI Route 107 originally ran from Pike Station (located at what is now U.S. Route 54 and the Mississippi River) to Griggsville. In the early 1930s, all of the route south of Pittsfield was changed to U.S. 54, leaving the portion between Pittsfield and Griggsville as Illinois 107. In 1964 the northern extension to Mount Sterling was added. In 1995, U.S. 54 replaced Illinois 107 north to the new U.S. Route 36 freeway, which then became Interstate 72.[2] As a result, Illinois 107 and U.S. 54 now terminate at the same interchange.
