FLASHBACK to JANUARY 13, 1984: A decade-long widening project on Interstate 55 makes its way north to two-lane County Line Road.

Back then, County Line went under the interstate, a bit north of where the current bridge stands. It was a rural, two-lane road with little traffic. This was before the days of Northpark Mall, the Hilton hotel and all the other development that followed. By the time construction was complete, County Line Road was a heavily-traveled thoroughfare.
