In the past several months, I've noticed new road signs along our stretch of US-12 here in northeast Illinois. It is now called the Iron Brigade Memorial Highway with very distinctively-designed signage.
The Iron Brigade was a famous Midwestern unit comprised of regiments from Michigan, Indiana, and Wisconsin. The 24th Michigan served part of their duty in Springfield, Illinois, and were the honor guard at Lincoln's funeral. That would explain Illinois' participation in the renaming.
