Route description

U.S. 36 parallels the old Wabash Railroad from the Mississippi River at Hannibal, MO east to Decatur, IL. Norfolk Southern Railway operates on this route today.

U.S. 36 is overlapped with Interstate 72 for more than half its routing in Illinois, 133 miles (214 km). At Decatur, I-72 separates from it and travels around the city to the north, while US 36 enters the city passes through downtown on the four-lane Eldorado Street. Just beyond 19th Street, US 36 turns to the southeast on a four-lane divided alignment paralleling a railroad, exiting Decatur on the southeast side. The road crosses Lake Decatur and narrows to two lanes before turning due east. After turning east, U.S. 36 runs largely in a straight line, mostly through open country, until it exits the state.
