Route description

Illinois 60 overlaps with Illinois Route 83 south of Ivanhoe where Illinois 83 curves around U.S. Route 45. It is called Town Line Road east of Illinois 83 and west of the Tri-State Tollway (Interstate 94), because Illinois 60 straddles the line separating Vernon and Libertyville Townships for most of its length. Through Lake Forest to the east, Route 60 is called Kennedy Road.

Route 60, especially the portion between Milwaukee Avenue and Interstate 94 in Mettawa, experiences unusually heavy traffic for an arterial road, although less so in recent years.

History

SBI Route 60 was the current U.S. Route 12 from the Wisconsin state line to Chicago. This was dropped in 1938. In 1967, Illinois 60 was brought back to replace "Illinois Route 59A". In 1972, Illinois 60 was removed east of U.S. 41 to "Illinois Route 42".
