In the U.S. state of Illinois, U.S. Route 34 is an east–west highway that runs from the Iowa state line at Gulfport, west of Galesburg, to Illinois Route 43 and Historic U.S. Route 66 at Harlem Avenue in Berwyn. The entire highway in Illinois is named the "Walter Payton Memorial Highway". The highway is 211.37 miles (340.17 km) long within the state.
US 34 formerly overlapped US 66 all the way to its endpoint in downtown Chicago, but was truncated to its intersection with US 66 and IL 43 in Berwyn in 1970. When US 66 was subsequently eliminated, the endpoint of US 34 was left at that location—the intersection of Ogden and Harlem Avenues in Berwyn. Due to the elimination of US 66, it is one of the few US Numbered Highways that ends at a state highway. With the re-signing of much of Historic US 66, the history of US 34's eastern endpoint is becoming much more clear.
A bypass of the town of Biggsville is currently under construction. It will create a diamond interchange between US 34 and IL 94 / IL 116 as well as bypass West Central High School. It is expected to be completed by the fall of 2014.
