SBI Route 5 originally ran from East Dubuque, Illinois to Chicago, mostly along the current U.S. Route 20. The portion that ran from Belvidere through Rockford is now known as Charles Street in Rockford, and was superseded by what is now the expressway extension of the US 20 Rockford Bypass to Belvidere.

In 1972, Illinois 5 was applied on the former Illinois Route 190, and what was then the tolled portion of U.S. Route 30. In 1975, Illinois 5 was designated as the East-West Tollway and extended to Rock Island, replacing some of Illinois Route 2 in the process. In 1990, Illinois 5 was changed over to Interstate 88 east of Interstate 80, while the portion of Illinois 5 in the Quad Cities remained.[1]
