Interstate 88 was designated in July 1987 over Illinois Route 5 along the East-West Tollway. The change was made to allow 65 mile per hour speed limits on the mostly rural expressway. The 140.6 mile long route in upstate Illinois connects the Quad Cities with Chicago and I-88 east from Exit 44 and the Whiteside County line doubles as the Ronald Reagan East-West Tollway. IL 110, the Chicago Kansas City Expressway (CKC), was added alongside I-88 in 2010 as part of a new route created to provide an alternate to I-55 and I-70 between the two cities.
