I forgot I was guessmaster here.  All good guesses for riverside state routes, but nobody has it so far!  Nobody has guessed along the right river, either, as a hint.

IL 25, Oswego, IL: https://goo.gl/maps/hvTBwRhT4GDCtq5M9

Correct!  We're looking at the Fox River, which is accompanied by a bike trail from Oswego all the way up to Algonquin.  As I grew up in Oswego, I used this bike trail many times (once they finally extended it south from Aurora to Oswego).

Welcome to the corn state - Indiana. What state route is this?

Bonus points if the US route is identified correctly as well

When I used to drive for a dispatch trucking company out of Cincinnati, I had four or five deliveries in the Madison area--one of them at the Clifty Creek Power Plant.  Anyway, I remembered that area looked familiar, mainly because of the divided highway that used to be just US 421 until IN 56 was rerouted out of the downtown Madison area a few years ago.  I checked on GSV and found I was correct.

I'm from Madison - I frequent 421 when I go downtown instead of using Michigan Road or 7 because it's closer to where I've lived.

I'm curious if I've been in the right area here, and we are due for a county reveal...
