Route description

Illinois 130 begins very near the Wabash River at Illinois 1 in Grayville. Traveling north, it overlaps Illinois Route 33 in Newton, U.S. Route 36 in Camargo and U.S. Route 150 in Urbana. It is also called High Cross Road in Urbana. Illinois 130 is an undivided two-lane surface road for its entire length.


SBI Route 130 was what Illinois 130 is now from Albion north to Charleston. In March 1937, when Illinois 1 was moved to a new road further south, Illinois 130 was extended south to Illinois 1.[3] In 1964, Illinois 130 was extended north to Mira Station, an unincorporated area south of Champaign in Champaign County. The highway was formerly county highways The University of Illinois Trail, with U and I superimposed, then the symbol of the University of Illinois.. In the 1980s it was moved to its present terminus, now running north from Philo to Urbana and along U.S. 150 to Interstate 74.[2] There is a short 4-lane divided stretch from US 150 to I-74, the only 4-lane portion of Illinois 130.

IL 130A

Illinois Route 130A was a spur of Illinois Route 130 during the 1930s. The route ran from Route 130 in Boos to Sainte Marie, a distance of 5 miles (8.0 km).[4] Route 130A was established in the 1930s, and it was decommissioned in 1942.[5] The route is now a local road known as both 600th Avenue and Embarras Street.
