Route description[edit]

Illinois Route 43 in Bridgeview, looking north.

Illinois 43 is called Waukegan Road for the first 20 miles (32 km) until its intersection with Oakton Street in Niles; it then follows that road west one block until it turns back south and remains Harlem Avenue for the duration. When Illinois Route 50 begins in Skokie and Illinois Route 171 begins in Chicago, It parallels those routes for much of the rest of its length. It enters, exits, and runs parallel to Chicago limits several times, passing through or parallel to Edison Park, Norwood Park, Dunning, Montclare, and Austin on the Northwest Side then Garfield Ridge and Clearing on the Southwest Side. It's listed as 7200 West in the Chicago address system. It is one of seven state roads that travel through the city of Chicago.

History[edit]

Illinois Route 42A originally ran on Waukegan Road and Harlem Avenue along modern-day Illinois 43. It was extended north to Highland Park in 1937 before being dropped for Illinois 43 in 1967.[1]

The original Illinois 43 is a current section of Illinois Route 4 from Marine to Murphysboro.

In Deerfield, Route 43 is designated a Blue Star Memorial Highway.[3]
