(A)   605 ILCS 5/8-101 et seq. Illinois Compiled Statutes, as amended, grants the authority to a County Board to designate particular highways on the county highway system as freeways for the purpose of promoting the safety and convenience of highway traffic by regulating access to the freeway. This designation may also apply to approach roads which intersect or approach the freeway. A permit for an access to such freeways shall be termed a "designated freeway access permit."  The County Board has the sole authority to grant or deny new points of access or changes, modifications, and/or revisions to existing points of access in accordance with 605 ILCS 5/8-102 et seq. as amended.
   (B)   As of January 2018, there are two such designated freeways on the county highway system. They are: (1) Washington Street (County Highway 45) from U.S. 41 to IL 21, and (2) Peterson Road (County Highway 20) from U.S. 45 to IL 60.
