In the U.S. state of Illinois, Interstate 64 is a major east–west Interstate highway that runs from the St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area east to the Indiana state line near Grayville, Illinois. It travels a distance of 130.4 miles (209.9 km).[1]

Route description[edit]

Interstate 64 enters Illinois concurred with Interstates 55 and 70, and U.S. Route 40 over the Mississippi River on the Poplar Street Bridge. After splitting off from these routes in East St. Louis, it turns southeasternly and runs through St. Clair, Clinton, Washington, and Jefferson counties through a rural part of Illinois with no major cities or intersections.[2][1] The only major intersection outside of St. Louis is a short concurrency with Interstate 57 near Mount Vernon. Past this, the interstate enters another rural stretch through parts of Jefferson, Wayne, and White counties before crossing the Wabash River into Indiana.[2]
