US Grant Memorial Highway

Had no idea 95th Street is also a memorial highway named for famed Civil War general and 18th President of the United State, Ulysses S. Grant. The US Grant Highway with a sign here located near 95th & State is designated through the state of Illinois as US Route 20. This press release is possibly why there is a sign here.

  1. Also, note that Halsted is part of the old Lincoln Highway and North Ave. was part of Route 66. All white signs denote state highways.
