Jane Addams Memorial

This is the direct link between the Greater-Rockford Area and the Chicago Metro Area. All of the Addams Tollway is shielded Interstate 90. The north-south section at Rockford is shielded with Interstate 39, and U.S. Rt. 51. This is the only tollway in the Illinois toll highway system to have a U.S. Highway along it.
