Chicago has named it's freeways. When listening to traffic reports, they use the names because it helps identify which part of the interstate is involved.

Adlai E. Stevenson Expressway
This is I-55 on the southwest side of town. It runs from the Dan Ryan/Lakeshore Drive/Downtown interchange (it's a high bridge intersection), southwest along the Sanitary Ship Canal to the Tristate Tollway. The Stevenson ends at the Tristate, but I-55 continues southwest to Joliet.

I-55 continues southward through Illinois to Springfield.
