Illinois Roads - IL 31



All photos are northbound.


Starting in Elgin, first photo at Mountain St. IL 31 follows the west side of the Fox River, and IL 25 follows the east side. IL 31 is longer and has more of these cool fox shields.


Illinois likes to build its assemblies to the same height, using blank banners where "necessary," but it's not remotely necessary here because straight ahead is NORTH. It's even more of a waste than usual because they would have to come back and replace it. (I say "would" because I'm quite sure they don't care enough about this trivial error to bother.)


There's plenty other warning that IL 31 turns, but it amuses me that the route you're on suddenly stepping out from under you takes second billing.
