Route descriptionEdit

 
IL 95 heading east of IL 41

Illinois 95 makes up part of direct highway between Macomb and Canton without touching either. It is an undivided, two-lane surface road for its entire length. At its eastern terminus, Illinois 95 and Illinois 97 form a Y-intersection.

HistoryEdit

SBI Route 95 ran from Niota (at the Mississippi River by Fort Madison, Iowa) to U.S. Route 24 at Illinois Route 78 via Illinois Route 9, Illinois 41, Illinois 95, Illinois 97, and U.S. 24. In March 1937 this was changed to its modern alignment.[3]

The future route for Illinois Route 336 between Macomb and Peoria will likely parallel or replace IL Route 95.
