Route description[edit]

Southern section[edit]

The road passes north through the towns of West Clinton and St. Bernice. It crosses U.S. Route 36 just before passing through the town of Dana. It passes just to the west of the Newport Chemical Depot, then heads northeast to its northern terminus at State Road 63 northwest of Newport.

Northern section[edit]

This is a straight 17.5-mile (28.2 km) north–south road except for a small jog about halfway along its length. The southern terminus is at State Road 352 near Ambia. It passes through the small towns of Dunnington and Freeland Park, then crosses State Road 18. It passes through the town of Raub where it crosses the Kankakee, Beaverville and Southern Railroad on its way from Earl Park northwest through Sheldon, Illinois. The northern terminus at U.S. Route 24/U.S. Route 52 about two miles (3 km) directly west of Kentland. The highway is mostly within Benton County, but the northernmost portion, about two miles (3 km) long, is in Newton County.
