Look up The Dixie Highway. It had a few routes, but all of them essentially went from the Upper Midwest to FL. One branch ran a couple of blocks from the house I grew up in. My paper route was along it too.


I live a stone's throw from the northern end of Chicago's Halsted Street. According to maps I've seen, at some point in Chicago's south suburbs, Halsted Street becomes the Dixie Highway -- going all the way down to, I have no idea, Dixie? Now your post is confusing me because you say the Dixie Highway was near where you grew up (I'm presuming in Michigan, most of which is quite a bit north of Chicago). Or are there more than one? You did say something about "branches".
