Route description

IL 102 runs parallel to and north of the Kankakee River for its entire length. For two miles (3.2 km), IL 102 is located next to the Kankakee River State Park. Entrances to the park's two major campgrounds are located off Illinois 102.

IL 113 takes a mostly parallel route, but on the south side of the river.

The road is two lanes for its entire length, except for a four-lane stretch with center turn lanes measuring approximately one and a half miles (2.4 km) near its eastern end in Bourbonnais. A center turn lane also exists within a two-lane section for a few blocks inside the city of Wilmington.

History

IL 102 and IL 113 were both established in 1924, and originally both routes were numbered as IL 113. In 1940, the branch of IL 113 on the north side of the river became IL 113N, and the south branch became IL 113S. In 1961, Illinois 113N was renumbered as IL 102, and IL 113S became IL 113 again.
