Interstate 70 – Effingham to Indiana

Drive America’s Highways for 57 miles east along Interstate 70 from Effingham to Indiana.

Finishing up our travels in Illinois (for now), we start our exodus northeast of Effingham, just past the interchange with Interstate 57 north (Chicago).

Passing Teutopolis and Montrose, and generally paralleling U.S. Highway 40, we pass the interchange with IL-130 in Greenup and IL-49 in Casey before reaching the final major interchange in Illinois at IL-1 in Marshall.

Finishing the last few miles of Illinois eastbound on I-70, we finish the video just after the Indiana border.

    "Passing Teutopolis"Teutopolis is for those who can't handle the bright lights and the hustle and bustle of Effingham. A way to get away from it all.

    Something else I've noticed about the IL-IN state line at I-70, both directions: There are no signs for either direction indicating a time zone change. Then again, I don't think there are any along I-64 at the time zone boundary between Evansville and Louisville.

      I don't think there is one by the chicagoland area either

      From north to south, time zone boundaries involving major roads and Indiana:I-94: MI/IN state lineI-80/90: LaPorte-St. Joseph county line, near New Carlisle, IndianaI-65: Jasper-White county line, near Remington, IndianaI-74: IL/IN state lineI-70: IL/IN state lineUS 50: Wabash River at Vincennes, the river at that point is the state lineI-64: Perry-Crawford county line, near English, IndianaI have seen with my own eyes the last four, that there are no time zone change signs either direction. So it should not be a surprise that you tell me there's none for I-65 either. As for the first two, I don't know, and GSV doesn't show me any obvious road signs in either direction.

      There aren't any signs to mark the time zone boundary on I-74 at the IL/IN state line between Danville, Illinois and Covington, Indiana, either.
