SBI Route 5 originally ran from East Dubuque to Chicago, mostly along the current US 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 The portion that ran from Belvidere through Rockford is now known as Charles Street in Rockford, and was superseded by what is now the expressway extension of the US 20 Rockford Bypass to Belvidere.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, IL 5 was applied on the former IL 190 and what was then the tolled portion of US 30. In 1975, IL 5 was designated as the East–West Tollway and extended to Rock Island, replacing some of IL 2 in the process. In 1990, IL 5 was changed over to I-88 east of I-80, while the portion of IL 5 in the Quad Cities remained.
The entire route is in Rock Island County.
