Illinois Route 60 is an east–west state highway in Lake County, in northeastern Illinois. It connects the village of Volo at Illinois Route 120 (Belvidere Road) just east of Illinois Route 59 with the city of Lake Forest at U.S. Highway 41 (Skokie Highway). Illinois 60 is 17.22 miles (27.71 km) long.
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.
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.
The entire route is in Lake County.
