LINCOLN HIGHWAY NEWS IS A BLOG BY BRIAN BUTKO
A new interpretive mural was added yesterday to the impressive collection lining the Lincoln Highway in Illinois. The Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition’s latest work of art was installed on the Fairway Foods building in Sauk Village, near the corner of Sauk Trail and Torrence Avenue.

Created and installed by ShawCraft Sign Co., it depicts a cow crossing the Kavelage Bridge that was along the Sauk Trail, an early piece of the Lincoln Highway. The artwork is the 24th of 36 murals that will line the Lincoln Highway National Scenic Byway across the state. Watch below as the ShawCraft teams installs the Sauk Village mural.


As the designated Scenic Byway management agency overseeing the Lincoln Highway National Scenic Byway, the Illinois Lincoln Highway Coalition (ILHC) continues to seek ways to recognize the significance of the highway and ways to make the stories come alive. After receiving a National Scenic Byway Grant from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and an Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Office of Tourism, Attraction Development (TAP) Grant, ILHC worked with Jay Allen of ShawCraft Signs to bring the murals to life.
