Louisville KY to Madison WI
« on: March 24, 2017, 08:00:44 AM »
Would you recommend 65N through Chicago?
Or 39N bypassing Chicago?
Both routes appear to be the same time and distance (according to google maps).
Thanks

I would take 39 if it were 2 hours longer.  But that's just me. ;)

I was thinking the same thing, but concerned that 39 has slow downs through towns.

I65 to I74 to I39 is a no brainer. Absolutely no reason to travel thru Chicago, Indy is bad enough. No slowdowns thru towns on I39, there are no towns of any size.

There will be a slow down at Rockford,Il., but not much. 39 is still in pretty good shape, just drove it a few weeks ago. There will also be some toll road N of Rockford, but can't remember how much, been 17 years since I've been snowmobiling in Northern Wis.

We've done that drive over a dozen times.  We live in oldham county and my sister lives in barrage (about 30 min north of madison)  We've never been through chicago going up.  I-65 usually is pretty crowded.  I-74 through Champaign and Bloomington is easy.  39 North is straight, flat and boring for about 3 hours.  Check your gas stops.  There are not many options from bloomington to rockford.  Never done that drive with my camper, but was about 8hrs in my SUV.
