Illinois roads

Question

My parents are driving our MR688 from PA to Indianola Iowa. Everything they have heard is that Illinois roads are awful. Can anyone give us feedback? A couple route options:

Rte 80

Rte 74 splitting to either 72 to Missouri or staying with 74 to Iowa.

Anyone know what shape these roads are in? Remember truck is a cabover bobtailing on 20k steer axle. It rides like shit, and my dad is nearing 70!

I 80 from355 to Morris is kinda rough especially from RT 30 to I 55both directions. And the bridge over the desplaines sucks .road construction from Briggs st to RT 53both directions. I'd rather drive across a plowed field.

They detoured down to Kentucky and Missouri so they could skip Illinois completely.  I'll be driving the truck back in 6 weeks when the mixer is done and mounted on. I'll have to try and find out what condition 74 is in.  I would take US 34 from Iowa to Galesburg Illinois, then pick up 74 to Indianapolis. Or I'll detour south to Missouri and Kentucky.
