Notes

  • North of Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, U.S. 41 is routed along Foster Avenue, Lincoln Avenue and Skokie Boulevard. South of Lake Shore Drive, U.S. 41 is routed along South Shore Drive (which itself requires two turns to stay on). It then is routed onto Bond Avenue, Baker Avenue, 85th Street, Burley Avenue, 87th Street, Mackinaw Avenue, Ewing Avenue and Indianapolis Avenue within the space of about 2 miles. The U.S. 41 relocation project seeks to straighten out this section of the highway by 2008.
