Army Navy Store Road

Army Navy Store Road connects Thurber to Feakeyville in Hamilton County, Illinois. The Old State Road ran from Vandalia through McLeansboro and Mayberry Township to Shawneetown in 1821. When the addresses changed for the 911 emergency project, Country Road 4 from Thurber to Feakeyville was renamed Army Navy Store Road since the former Thompson's Army Navy Store had been located at the northern end.

Army Navy Store Road Construction Project, October 2019

During October 2019, the segment of Army Navy Store Road from Lick Creek Church south to Feakeyville was converted from gravel to oil and chat with a cement-like base. We are grateful to those that made the upgrade possible and welcome the end of the airborne gravel dust.

Culverts were replaced, the road widened, ditches opened, and the road surface graded
