List of State Roads in Indiana
State Roads in the US state of Indiana are numbered rationally: in general, odd one-digit and two-digit highways are north-south highways, numbers increasing toward the west; even one-digit and two-digit highways are east-west highways, numbers increasing toward the south, the opposite of the United States Interstate System.
Three-digit routes are related, as a rule, to the single-digit or two-digit parent US or State route; thus State Road 205 is related to State Road 5 and State Road 120 is related to U.S. Route 20.
Exceptions to this system are "47" and "67", diagonal routes, the defunct "100" beltline around Indianapolis, State Road 135, which acts like a two-digit state highway, and both State Road 149 and State Road 249, which are arterial between State Road 49 and State Road 51.
The numbers of several important U.S. Highway routes that pass through Indiana are not used as Indiana route numbers: these include 6, 12, 20, 27, 30, 31, 33, 35, 36, 40, 41, and 50. U.S. 40, in fact, roughly corresponds in location to where "Indiana 40" would be; Indiana 38 is north of it and Indiana 42 is south of it. U.S. 6 is located similarly.
State Road 1 is a north-south state highway in the eastern portion of the U.S. state of Indiana. Its southern terminus is at U.S. Highway 50 in east-central Dearborn County, just east of Lawrenceburg. Its northern terminus is at U.S. Highway 20 in east-central Steuben County, approximately six miles east of Angola.
Length: 80.98 mi (130.32 km)
State Road 2 in the U.S. State of Indiana is an east-west route running from the Illinois border at Illinois Route 17 east to the outskirts of South Bend, Indiana at the U.S. 20/31 freeway, also known as the St. Joseph Valley Parkway. This is a distance of 80.98 miles (130.32 km).
History of Indiana State Road 2
Indiana 2 has largely been replaced by the Indiana Toll Road (80/90) and by U.S. Route 20. Indiana 2 appears to be part of an old alignment from Kankakee, Illinois to South Bend, Indiana, and runs more diagonally than other east-west state highways in Indiana.
In Valparaiso, Indiana 2 has been rerouted around the downtown and central business districts of the city. Instead of traveling through the city along Washington Street, Indiana 2 overlaps U.S. Route 30 and the Valparaiso Bypass (State Road 49).
Several times in its history, Indiana 2 has run along the path of the Lincoln Highway.
Old Indiana State Route 2
Until the completion of the St. Joseph Valley Parkway around the South Bend - Elkhart area, Indiana 2 continued to downtown South Bend, mostly along Western Avenue (which remains, but no longer has state highway markers). State Road 2 originally followed the Lincoln Highway to Fort Wayne before US 33 supplanted it east of downtown South Bend. Part of SR 2's former routing is now SR 933.
Miscellaneous info about Indiana State Road 2
Just east of LaPorte, U.S. 20 and SR 2 "switch alignments" at a lighted intersection. That is, U.S. 20 follows the north and west legs of the intersection, while Indiana 2 follows the south and east legs.
Indiana State Road 3
Length: 223.55 mi (359.77 km)
State Road 3 in the U.S. State of Indiana is a discontinuous state road running through east central Indiana from near the Michigan state line to near the Ohio River. The southernmost terminus is at State Road 62 in Charlestown, and the northernmost terminus is at State Road 120 near Brighton.
The route was continuous until 1972, when the route was split into two segments that exist today.
History of Indiana State Road 3
Until 1972, SR 3 went through Fort Wayne. But with the completion of I-69, the section that went through Fort Wayne was turned back.
Until 1980, Indiana 3 was concurrent with Indiana 62 until it reached Interstate 65 in Jeffersonville.
In 1990, the four-lane upgrade from the DeKalb/Allen County line north of Huntertown to Kendallville was completed, bypassing the towns of LaOtto and Avilla. This made Indiana 3 four lanes for the 25 miles (40 km) from I-69 in Fort Wayne to US 6 in Kendallville.
Currently, there are preparations in progress for widening about 3 miles (4.8 km) from s/o Ludwig Road in Fort Wayne to n/o Dupont Road in Allen County. This section of highway will be widened to six lanes and it is slated for completion in 2011.
Miscellaneous info about Indiana State Road 3
State Road 103, a branch of SR 3, never intersects with this route (the parent), although that route was the original routing of SR 3.
State Road 4 in the U.S. State of Indiana is in fact three different, disconnected surface highways in northern Indiana, although local highways that have never been part of the state highway system could in fact connect them.
Length: 25 mi (40 km)
The western section of State Road 4 in the U.S. State of Indiana is the longest of the three State Road 4 sections.
State Road 4 connects LaPorte at a junction with SR 2 with Lakeville at a junction with U.S. Route 31. It meets State Road 23 in North Liberty and has a short spur, State Road 104.
Length: 7 mi (11 km)
The middle section of State Road 4 is a 7-mile (11 km) long surface road in the northern part of the U.S. State of Indiana. This section is the original section, and it was envisioned that after the western SR 4 was completed, that they would connect and be a connected SR 4,
The western terminus of the middle section of State Road 4 is at SR 15/U.S. Route 33 in Goshen, and the eastern terminus is at SR 13 in Elkhart County.
The entire route is in Elkhart County
Length: 5.4 mi (8.7 km)
The eastern section of State Road 4 is the shortest of the three sections. Much of this section used to be designated as State Road 727 until U.S. Route 27 was re-routed onto the newly-completed Interstate 69.
The western terminus is at Indiana State Road 327 in Helmer, and the eastern terminus is at an interchange with Interstate 69 in Ashley. It runs parallel with an Indiana Northeastern Railroad line, which is just 1,000 feet (300 m) to the north of the highway.
The entire route is in DeKalb County.
Length: 96 mi (154 km)
State Road 5 is a north-south road that runs through northeast Indiana. Its southern terminus is at SR 22 in Upland, and the northern terminus is at SR 120 just north of Shipshewana. The largest city along its path is Huntington. It is entirely a surface highway that is very rural outside of the towns.

Length: 40.9 mi (65.8 km)
State Road 7 in the U.S. State of Indiana is located in southeast Indiana. It runs from northwest-to-southeast connecting the cities of Columbus and Madison.
History of Indiana State Road 7
SR 7's former terminus was in downtown Columbus. It has since been truncated east of it since SR 46 was rerouted around the city.
Near Dupont, Indiana, there is a ford in the road that was an integral location on Morgan's Raid. This ford has never been bridged, and the road is impassible when the water is high. At regular and low levels, cars drive through it daily.
State Road 8 in the U.S. State of Indiana consists of two disconnected sections that were never connected.
Length: 42 mi (68 km)
The western State Road 8 connects State Road 2 and U.S. Route 231 in Hebron with State Road 17 near Plymouth. It is 42 miles (68 km) long.
History of Indiana State Road 8 (west)
In the early 1940s, SR 8's western terminus was at the Illinois state line, becoming Exchange Street. It was truncated eastward to US 41 in St. John in the 1970s. From St. John to Hebron, it was concurrent to US 231. SR 8 was later truncated to its junction with US 231 in Hebron, eliminating the concurrency.
Length: 34 mi (55 km)
The eastern State Road 8 is 34 miles (55 km) long, and it connects State Road 9 in Albion to the Ohio state line at Ohio State Route 18.
History of Indiana State Road 8 (east)
In the 1950s, SR 8 started in Lake Wawasee and continued east to the Ohio state line. That later formed another discontinuous section of SR 8, until that section was deleted in the 1970s.
Length: 196 mi (315 km)
State Road 9 in the U.S. State of Indiana is a long north-south state highway in the eastern portion of Indiana. Its southern terminus is near Columbus at State Road 46, and the northern terminus is at the Michigan/Indiana border between Howe, Indiana and Sturgis, Michigan, where it continues as M-66.
Some of Indiana 9 is divided highway and even freeway, but Interstate 69 largely supplants it as all but a regional route between Huntington and Anderson.
Miscellaneous info about Indiana State Road 9
The nickname of State Road 9 is utilized because three of Indiana's five Vice Presidents lived in cities along the route:
Indiana's other two vice presidents are also honored by the highway nickname:
Length: 85.3 mi (137.3 km)
State Road 10 is an east-west road in northwest Indiana. Its western terminus is at the Illinois state line west of Lake Village. Its eastern terminus is at State Road 19 south of Etna Green.
State Road 11 in the U.S. State of Indiana is located in south central Indiana and is divided into a northern and southern section. These sections were never connected.
Length: 30 mi (48.3 km)
The southern portion of State Road 11 is a southwest-northeast road in Floyd and Harrison counties in southern Indiana. Its southern terminus is at State Road 135 near the town of Mauckport, which is on the Ohio River. From there, the highway runs roughly northeast for a distance of about 30 miles (48 km) and ends where it meets State Road 62, east of the town of Lanesville.
Length: 26 mi (41.8 km)
The northern portion of State Road 11 is a north-south road in Bartholomew and Jackson counties in south-central Indiana. Its southern terminus is at State Road 250 in the small town of Dudleytown a few miles south of Seymour; the highway runs north through Seymour to Columbus, a distance of about 26 miles (42 km), and ends where it meets U.S. Route 31.
Length: 138 mi (222 km)
State Road 13 in the U.S. State of Indiana is a north-south highway in north-central and central Indiana that connects the area east of Indianapolis with the northern part of the state. Its northern terminus is at the Michigan state line, although starting at the interchange with the Indiana Toll Road, where it feeds into U.S. Highway 131 just south of the Michigan state line, markers are no longer posted, and an "END" assembly exists; its southern terminus is in Fortville, Indiana, where it meets U.S. Highway 36 and State Road 67. All of SR 13 is undivided surface road.
State Road 13 passes through (from north to south):
It has an interchange with Interstate 69 near Lapel, Indiana, around its southern terminus, but at no identifiable town.
Fortville, junction U.S. Highway 36 and State Road 67 (southern terminus)
History of Indiana State Road 13
State Road 13 used to extend into downtown Indianapolis until the 1940s.
State Road 13 originated with an old Indian trail. This was part of the route that Eastern settlers, having crossed the lakes to Detroit, used after they disembarked to travel south into Indiana. In the early days, S.R. 13 was called the "Logansport-White Pigeon Road."
There is a Business Indiana 13 from Main St. (SR 114) to IN 13 at North Manchester -- labeled as "Wayne St.", it follows the original route of IN 13 through town.
Length: 123 mi (198 km)
State Road 14 is an east-west road in northern Indiana. Its western terminus is at U.S. Route 41 in Enos, and its eastern terminus is at Interstate 69 in Fort Wayne.
Indiana State Road 14 passes through these cities and towns, from west to east:
In August 2005, construction on a new ramp connecting Indiana State Road 14 to Interstate 65 was completed. Winamac is the only control city listed, and is approximately 40 miles (64 km) east of the interchange. The ramp is noted for direct access to Fair Oaks Farms, immediately west of the interchange.
Until 1995, State Road 14 continued east of I-69, following Illinois Road to Washington Boulevard, then following Washington Boulevard through downtown Fort Wayne. East of the city center, State Road 14 briefly joined State Road 930. It then split from SR-930 in New Haven, continuing east on Lincoln Highway and Dawkins Road to its former eastern terminus at the village of Edgerton, Indiana at the Ohio state line. This segment was decommissioned in 1995 with the opening of Interstate 469.
Length: 95 mi (153 km)

Indiana State Road 19 passes through these cities and towns, from south to north:
History of Indiana State Road 19
Until 2008, State Road 19 had existed in two sections. The southern section ended at State Road 22 east of Kokomo; the highway picked up again at State Road 18 south of Amboy.
Originally, from the Michigan state line to Elkhart, S.R. 19 was part of U.S. Route 112 from 1926 to 1934, and U.S. Route 112S from 1934 to 1936.

State Road 29 is a north-south road in north-central Indiana.
The southern terminus of State Road 29 is at U.S. Route 421 and State Road 28 just south of the small town of Boyleston. Going north, it passes through Michigantown in Clinton County, then along the eastern border of Carroll County where it passes through Burlington. Its northern terminus is at U.S. Route 24 and U.S. Route 35 on the south side of Logansport.
History of Indiana State Road 29
At one time, State Road 29 was much longer, going from Madison in the south to Michigan City in the north; when US 421 was commissioned, it took over much of the route. The original road was laid out in the 1830s and construction on the first road was completed in 1841. It was known as "Michigan Road."
Length: 156.8 mi (252.3 km)
State Road 32 in the U.S. State of Indiana is an east-west highway in central Indiana that crosses the entire state, covering a distance of about 157 miles (253 km).
The western terminus of State Road 32 is at the Illinois state border where the route becomes a county road. The eastern terminus is at the Ohio state border where the route becomes Ohio State Route 47. Between Selma and the Muncie area, some sections are divided, but the vast majority of State Road 32 is rural and undivided.
232.5 mi (374 km)
State Road 37 (SR 37) in the U.S. State of Indiana at one time ran from the northeast of the state to the south end. In the pre-Interstate Highway era, Indiana 37 was the most direct route between Fort Wayne and Indianapolis, although Interstate 69 has supplanted it and some other highways as through routes. It remains as the principal link between Indianapolis and Bloomington.
While State Road 37 physically exists in two discontinuous segments, it is actually a continuous route in the state's route logs. The mileposts along the northeastern segment start at 222 just northeast of the intersection with I-469. The mileage for the "decommissioned" segment follows State Road 9 to Huntington, then turns follows US-24 northeast to I-69 on the southwest side of Fort Wayne. It then follows I-69 south to I-469, then I-469 east then north to the interchange with the northern segment.
De-signing a state road where it overlaps another state road, interstate or US highway is quite common in Indiana, since state law sets a maximum limit to Indiana's state highway mileage as 12,000 miles (19,000 km). However, for continuity purposes, the entire route--signed and unsigned portions--are retained in the state's route logs.
The Indiana Department of Transportation has removed State Road 37 signs where it coincided with existing highways and inside the freeway loops surrounding Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. It now consists of two discontinuous segments:
Its original route through Indianapolis started with Binford Boulevard, which continues southwestward from I-69 at the interchange with I-465. Binford Blvd. then ends and traffic merges onto East Fall Creek Parkway North Drive. State Road 37's traffic followed this route still southwestward, then turned to the west onto East 38th Street. SR 37 followed this to North Meridian Street, and turned south, joining with the traffic from U.S. Highway 31 before it too was routed onto I-465. The route continued south to East North Street for one block and then southward onto North Pennsylvania Street for southbound traffic, and northbound traffic was one block to the east on North Delaware Street. The traffic then joined together on Madison Avenue, south of downtown, headed in a south-southeast direction. State Road 37's old route then continued directly south on South East Street to I-465 west to its current exit, #4, Harding Street.
Bluff Road, a south-southwest-bound street on the south side of Indianapolis was sometimes shown on some road maps as "37A", due to the fact that State Road 37 used to follow this route, but does not interchange with I-465/SR 37, nor does it have an intersection with State Road 37 south of that; it stops just short of the road in a dead end (though there is access to 37 via nearby Wicker Road immediately before that dead end). Allisonville Road, a north-northeast bound street on the opposite side of Indianapolis, was also shown as State Road 37A, but the road does terminate at State Road 37 north of the city and at Binford Blvd. at its south end.
SR 37 will be upgraded on the spot to become Interstate 69 from north of Victor Pike in Bloomington to the curve south of Epler Avenue in Indianapolis, where I-69 will run straight north to Interstate 465.
Frank O'Bannon Highway
In recent years, Indiana's official state highway maps have shown the 10-mile (16 km) extension of the Frank O'Bannon Highway (named for the late former governor) between Interstate 64 at St. Croix and Indiana 64 at Eckerty numbered as Indiana 145. However, when the extension opened in November 2007, the signs proved that the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) had a change of heart.
At I-64 Exit 79, where Indiana 37 once turned east and ran concurrent with the interstate for eight miles (13 km) before continuing its northern journey, the route now continues north approximately 10 miles (16 km) to Eckerty. At Eckerty, westbound Indiana 64 continues the new route to the northwest for a short distance (less than a mile) before meeting the existing Indiana 145, which continues north across Patoka Lake to French Lick. The new roadway thus creates a "straight shot" from Indiana 37's southern terminus at Tell City to French Lick, West Baden and the new casino. It also will reduce travel time for those traveling to Indianapolis.
For its part, Indiana 37 now turns to the east and is concurrent with Indiana 64 from Eckerty to English, where it exits the eastbound highway and rejoins the old route. The old, winding stretch of 37 from I-64 at Exit 86 north to English has been renumbered as Indiana 237.
Length: 116.4 mi (187.33 km)
State Road 38 in the U.S. State of Indiana serves as a connection between Lafayette in the west and Richmond in the east.
State Road 38 begins in Lafayette with State Road 25 and U.S. Route 52. There is an interchange with Interstate 65 at exit 168. It proceeds west-southwest through Frankfort and Sheridan, then through the north Indianapolis suburb of Noblesville. It continues through Pendleton where it crosses Interstate 69, then on through New Castle and Hagerstown. State Road 38 terminates in Richmond where it meets U.S. Route 35.
194.7 mi (313.34 km)
State Road 39 in the U.S. State of Indiana is the name of two distinct north-south highways in the state of Indiana. The northern route of the two starts at the Michigan border near Interstate 94 (via M-239) and ends at Indiana 37 in Martinsville. The road runs south, passing through the following towns:
In the 1960s, State Road 39 was the connector between the west end of Interstate 94 (which ended just north of the Michigan-Indiana border) and the Indiana Toll Road. Hence, a dozen miles of this winding 2-lane road carried all of the heavy traffic between Chicago and Detroit.
Located in south-central Indiana, the shorter State Road 39 links State Road 250 near Brownstown with Little York in Washington County before terminating at State Road 56
Length: 62.6 mi (100.7 km)
State Road 42 is an east-west road in Central Indiana. Its western terminus is at State Road 46 in Terre Haute. Its eastern terminus is at State Road 67 in Mooresville.
State Road 43 in the U.S. State of Indiana is split into two segments.
This winding, two-lane section of State Road 43 connects Indiana State Road 46 in Owen County near McCormick's Creek State Park with Indiana State Road 54 in eastern Greene County. It covers a distance of 23.35 miles (37.58 km).
The northern portion of State Road 43 begins at US 231 in West Lafayette. Going north, it passes through Battleground, Brookston and Chalmers before terminating at US 24 and US 421 in Reynolds. It covers a distance of 22.76 miles (36.63 km).
Length: 89.9 mi (144.7 km)
State Road 44 in the U.S. State of Indiana begins in the west at State Road 37 in Martinsville and runs eastward to the Ohio state line in Union County.
State Road 44 passes through the following towns:
Length: 55 mi (89 km)
State Road 45 is a state route from Bean Blossom, Indiana to Rockport, Indiana in the southern half of the state.
From Bean Blossom and through Brown County, State Road 45 is a narrow, shoulderless two-lane road that passes between the Morgan-Monroe State Forest and the Yellowwood State Forest. It is heavily wooded and follows the natural terrain, which gives the road tight curves and steep hills.
As the road passes into Monroe County, the woods disappear and farms and homes begin to line the road. The road remains hilly and curvy until it reaches Bloomington, where it bypasses the city concurrent with State Road 46 and then State Road 37. West of Bloomington, shoulders appear on State Road 45 and its two lanes become wider. The road meanders with the rolling terrain until it meets and overlaps State Road 58, after which it is straight and flat until its terminus at US 231.
History of Indiana State Road 45
Until the late 1990s, a section also existed south of Rockport that acted as a connector road to US 231 (now State Road 161) and Owensboro, Kentucky. The southern section was deleted about the same time that US 231 was rerouted onto the William H. Natcher Bridge. That former section of US 231 was renamed as State Road 161 with the short Kentucky section given the number 2155.
Length: 153.7 mi (247.4 km)
State Road 46 in the U.S. State of Indiana is an east-west state highway in the southern half of Indiana.
The western terminus of State Road 46 is at U.S. Route 40 in central Vigo County, just east of Terre Haute. The eastern terminus is at U.S. Route 52 in northeastern Dearborn County.
Indiana State Road 46 is a road that runs from the western side of Indiana, through Terre Haute, Bloomington and Columbus and continues through to the eastern side of the state where it runs into I-74 and U.S. Route 52 west of Cincinnati, Ohio. It is not a limited access highway and intersects with almost every road that it passes close to.
East of town
SR 46 comes into Monroe County just under five and one-half miles east of Bloomington. After traversing this distance westward, it meets SR 446 at a stoplight, and picks up the name "3rd Street". 3rd/46 continues west for 1.4 miles until it meets College Mall Road.
A main route around Bloomington is The Bypass. It begins when 46 leaves 3rd Street at College Mall Road and heads northwest. At 10th Street, the Bypass picks up SR 45 and continues northwest, eventually turning west an an intersection with Fee Lane. It passes Assembly Hall and Memorial Stadium on its left before it eventually makes it to Walnut Street. West of Walnut, the Bypass becomes a 4-laned divided highway and heads straight for SR 37. At an interchange with 37, State Road 45 leaves the Bypass and continues south with State Road 37.
West of 37/Ellettsville
46 continues west past 37 as a 4-laned highway until it comes to Smith Pike on the outskirts of Ellettsville. After Smith Pike, 46 continues west to the main town of Ellettsville, where westbound traffic is carried one way west on Main Street, and eastbound traffic is carried on Temperance Street. Beyond Ellettsville, SR 46 winds its way west to the county line, and proceeds into Owen County on its way to Terre Haute.
In November, 2002 an extension from the intersection of 46 with State Road 37 to the intersection near Smith Pike near Ellettsville was finished and opened to the public. Prior to this, the majority of traffic that wanted to get from Bloomington to Ellettsville and beyond had to leave The Bypass at SR 37, and go north to an off-ramp at Arlington Road, which was State Road 46 at the time. Since Arlington Road is just a two-laned road, increased traffic caused major traffic problems and lead to the development of this extension.
The extension originally only had one new stoplight at the exit to get onto State Road 37 southbound. This light has caused major traffic snarls due to the large number of people turning to go south and the short timer on the light. It causes people going east bound on 46 to be frequently stopped in high traffic. A new traffic light was placed at State Road 46 and the new extension to Curry Pike in preparation for the Northpoint development there.
Since 2002 there has been an increase in traffic on the new 4 lane divided highway, probably due to increased traffic from Owen County.
Just before 46 meets up with Arlington Road near Ellettsville, there are two service driveways that don't go anywhere, this is a popular location for roadside vendors to setup their wares. Flowers, flags and paintings have all been sold from this location on both sides of the highway.

State Road 49 in the U.S. State of Indiana is a state highway in northwest Indiana. It runs from just north of Chesterton at the intersection with U.S. Route 12 (Dunes Highway) south to a rural interchange 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Rensselaer with State Road 14. This is a distance of about 44.15 miles (71.05 km).
The route has major junctions at its northern end, intersecting U.S. 12, U.S. Route 20, Interstate 94, and Interstates 80/90 (Indiana Toll Road) in its first 5 miles (8.0 km). The distance between U.S. 12 and Interstate 94 in particular is no more than 3/4 of a mile (1 km). The highway then expands to become a four-lane expressway, with a full interchange at U.S. Route 6. It returns to intersections at grade after U.S. 6, and then elevates to a four-lane expressway for interchanges at State Road 2 and U.S. Route 30. The remainder of the route is a two-lane rural road with at-grade interchanges.
The portion of the highway south of Interstae (80/90) and north of U.S. 30 is known as the Valparaiso Bypass, but it is signed as the Van Ness Highway. The bypass replaces Calumet Avenue, which had taken Indiana 49 through downtown Valparaiso.

State Road 62 begins at a toll bridge over the Wabash River between New Haven, Illinois and Posey County. From the east side of Mount Vernon through Evansville, SR 62 is the Lloyd Expressway, a divided expressway-grade highway until reaching U.S. 41 nearly halfway through the city. Then SR 62 concurs U.S. 41 with SR 66 to Morgan Avenue on which it leaves Evansville. East of Evansville, the four lane divided road continues to Chandler then becomes a two-lane road and for much of its trip through Spencer, Perry, Crawford, Harrison and western Floyd counties, it is narrow, winding and hilly.
State Road 62 overlaps Interstate 64, Interstate 265 and SR 265, bypassing the cities of New Albany, Clarksville and Jeffersonville. The highway then turns to the northeast, serving the cities of Charlestown, Hanover and Madison before ending at State Road 262 just south of U.S. Route 50 at Dillsboro.
Before the extension of Interstate 265, State Road 62 went directly through the cities of New Albany, Clarksville, and Jeffersonville.
State Road 62 passes through the following major cities and towns, from west to east:
History of State Road 62
In the pre-Interstate era, Indiana 62 between Evansville and New Albany was also U.S. Highway 460, a heavily-traveled route between St. Louis, Missouri and Louisville, Kentucky before Interstate 64 supplanted it as a through route.
Indiana 62 forms part of the Lincoln Heritage Trail.
SR 62 is known as the Lloyd Expressway within Evansville's city limits. It is named in honor of former Mayor Russell G. Lloyd, Sr. who was assassinated after leaving office in 1980. Evansville residents use the term expressway loosely due to the large number of stoplights along the Evansville stretch of the route.

State Road 63 in the U. S. state of Indiana is a north-south route in the western portion of the state. Until mid-2008, it covered a distance of just over 96 miles (154 km), but now is a discontinuous route. For 63 miles (101 km), from the city of Terre Haute until it rejoins U.S. Route 41 near Carbondale, it is a four-lane divided highway and replaces U.S. 41 as the major north-south artery in this portion of the state.
State Road 63 starts as two-lane highway in the small town of Merom in Sullivan County at the terminus of State Road 58. From there it winds generally northward through the small towns of Graysville, Fairbanks, Prairie Creek and Prairieton.
The highway then passes through Terre Haute in Vigo County, where it is concurrent with US 41 and US 150 starting at Hulman Street; US 150 departs to the west after about a mile at Cherry Street. After another two miles (3 km), at Maple Avenue, State Road 63 separates from US 41, becomes a four-lane divided highway, and crosses to the west side of the Wabash River; US 41 continues on the east side of the river. From this point northward, State Road 63 remains within a few miles to the west of the river, and remains a four-lane divided highway; US 41 is primarily a two-lane highway from this point northward until it meets State Road 63 again.
Continuing north, the highway passes through the city of Clinton in Vermillion County. North of Clinton, it does not pass through any other cities, but it does pass close to (in order from south to north) Montezuma, the Newport Chemical Depot, Newport, Cayuga, Perrysville, Covington, and West Lebanon.
At its northern terminus, it re-joins US 41 in northern Warren County, near the small town of Carbondale. At this point, US 41 once again becomes a four-lane divided highway, taking over from State Road 63.
2008 Decommissioning of Indiana State Road 63
In mid-2008, the Indiana Department of Transportation decommissioned the approximately 13-mile (21 km) stretch of S.R. 63 between S.R. 246 in Prairie Creek and U.S. 41 in Terre Haute. The rural section of highway was turned over to the control of Vigo County, while the portion within the city of Terre Haute (known locally as Prairieton Road and Hulman Street) is now under the control of the city street department.
History of Indiana State Road 63
The four-lane portion of State Road 63 was built in the early 1970s, bypassing West Lebanon and resulting in the creation of a 13-mile (21 km) business route State Road 263 (which is a portion of the original route) through the town. The four-lane highway is often called "New 63" by local residents, and the business route is often called "Old 63".
Length: 107.5 mi (173.0 km)
State Road 64 in the U.S. State of Indiana is an east-west highway that crosses most of the southern portion of the state, covering a distance of about 107 miles (172 km).
State Road 64 begins at a bridge across the Wabash River at Mount Carmel, Illinois, connecting it with Illinois Route 15. It ends at Interstate 64 near Edwardsville. For the bulk of its length, it runs parallel to Interstate 64 and approximately 30 miles (48 km) north of the it. Most of the route is two-lane undivided highway, with undivided multi-lane segments in the city of Princeton near the junction of U.S. Route 41, and through the city of Huntingburg.
The stretch of State Road 64 between Princeton and Mount Carmel is scheduled to be transformed into a four-lane highway sometime around 2012 as part of Governor Mitch Daniels' Major Moves Project. This stretch of IN-64, currently a two-lane highway is often a very congested and sometimes very dangerous stretch of highway with numerous crosses along it referring to the stretch's numerous casualties.
At the western end of this stretch are two very narrow bridges that typically handle at least 900-1200 vehicles a day, doubling to ~2000 a day vehicles during Mount Carmel's Ag Days, Lone Ranger Festival, and other holidays. The road is heavily used by commuters to the Gibson Generating Station and residents of Mount Carmel and nearby cities in Illinois commuting to Princeton and cities and factories along U.S. Route 41. In April 2008 excavation began on a bridge to replace the current one spanning the Wabash River.
Cities and towns served by SR 64 include, from west to east:
Length: 47.7 mi (76.8 km)
State Road 65 crosses in four counties in the southwest portion of the U.S. State of Indiana.
State Road 65 begins at State Road 66 west of Evansville. It arc to the northwest to the town of Cynthiana and State Road 68, then proceeds north through Owensville to State Road 64. It shares this route east into Princeton, then proceeds northeast to its terminus at State Road 56 west of Petersburg, just inside Pike County.
Length: 150.52 mi (242.2 km)
State Road 66 in the U.S. State of Indiana is an east-west highway in six counties in the southernmost portion of the state.
State Road 66 begins at the eastern end of a toll bridge over the Wabash River in New Harmony and ends at U.S. Route 150 east of Hardinsburg. It is a divided limited-access highway in the metropolitan Evansville area and also between the unincorporated communities of Yankeetown and Hatfield. For the most part, however, State Road 66 is undivided rural highway, and a large portion of its route (from just east of Newburgh to State Road 62 at Sulphur) carries the designation of the Ohio River Scenic Byway.
State Road 66 passes through the following cities and towns, from west to east:
Intersects U.S. Route 150 near Hardinsburg
Major widening of Indiana State Road 66
Increasing traffic on the segment of State Road 66 between Evansville and the Alcoa plant east of Newburgh has led the Indiana Department of Transportation to widen the road (eventually being capable of expansion to six lanes) from State Road 261 to the western end of the present Yankeetown-Hatfield four-lane segment.
As of March 2009, work was well underway on the segment from State Road 261 to the Newburgh Lock & Dam.

State Road 67 in the U.S. State of Indiana cuts a diagonal route from southwest to northeast across the state from the north side of Vincennes to Indianapolis to the Ohio state line, where it becomes State Route 29 east of Bryant.
State Road 67 is a two-lane highway from Vincennes to near Martinsville, where it becomes a four-lane limited-access highway. SR 67 overlaps U.S. Highway 231 from three miles (5 km) southwest of Worthington, Indiana, to six miles (10 km) north of Spencer, a distance of approximately 30 miles (48 km).
Once SR 67 reaches Indianapolis, as Kentucky Avenue, it overlaps Interstate 465 around the south and east sides of the city until Exit 42, where SR 67 and U.S. Highway 36 depart the city to the northeast as Pendleton Pike. U.S. Highway 36 splits off from State Road 67 in Pendleton and proceeds east.
SR 67 joins Interstate 69 from Anderson to Daleville, where it leaves the interstate and becomes an expressway bypass that serves the south and east sides of Muncie.
Northeast of Muncie, SR 67 wraps up its diagonal run in the same manner as it began: as a rural, two-lane highway. Portions of the route overlap others.
Length: 52.88 mi (85.1 km)
State Road 68 in the U.S. State of Indiana is a 53-mile (85 km) route in Gibson, Posey, Spencer and Warrick counties.
State Road 68 begins in New Harmony at State Road 69 and runs east, passing through the towns of Poseyville, Cynthiana, Haubstadt, Lynnville and Selvin. State Road 68 nearly parallels Interstate 64, but although it passes over the interstate twice, there is no direct interchange. It ends at US 231 in the town of Dale.
Length: 35.07 mi (56.4 km)
State Road 69 is a 35-mile (56 km) route that runs from south to north through western Posey County in the southwestern corner of the U.S. state of Indiana.
State Road 69 begins at the Hovey Lake Fish and Wildlife Area in southwestern Posey County, near the confluence of the Ohio River and the Wabash River. It proceeds roughly northeast to Mount Vernon, then goes north to New Harmony on the Wabash River, and continues north to Griffin where it terminates at Interstate 64. Because of its status as a connector between Southwind Maritime Centre and Interstate 64, State Road 69 has exceptionally wide shoulders throughout much of its route, especially in the section north of Mount Vernon.
From south to north, the highway serves the towns of Mount Vernon, Farmersville, Solitude, New Harmony, and Griffin.
History of Indiana State Road 69
Originally, State Road 69 ran between New Harmony and Mount Vernon. Eventually it was connected to Interstate 64 at the Griffin exit and rerouted to bypass New Harmony. In Mount Vernon, State Road 69 was extended all the way down to Hovey Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area. In the late 1990s, the highway was routed onto the new William Keck Bypass on the eastern side of Mount Vernon.
State Road 70 in the U.S. state of Indiana consists of two discontinuous east-west segments of two-lane rural roadway. State Road 70 passes through no cities or towns of significant size.
The western segment is about 10 miles (16 km) long and is relatively straight; it runs entirely within the boundaries of Spencer County, from U.S. Route 231 at the west end through the unincorporated town of Newtonville to State Road 66 at the east end.
The eastern segment about 6.2 miles (10.0 km) long and is a more winding road than the western segment; it runs entirely within Perry County, from State Road 37 at the west end to State Road 66 in the community of Derby, on the banks of the Ohio River, at the east end.
State Road 71 in west-central Indiana consists of two discontinuous north-south segments of two-lane rural roadway near the Illinois border.
This section is about 20 miles (32 km) long and is entirely within Vermillion County. The southern terminus is at State Road 163 in the town of Blanford. The road passes north through the towns of West Clinton and St. Bernice. It crosses U.S. Route 36 just before passing through the town of Dana. It passes just to the west of the Newport Chemical Depot, then heads northeast to its northern terminus at State Road 63 northwest of Newport.
This is a straight 17.5-mile (28.2 km) north-south road except for a small jog about halfway along its length. The southern terminus is at State Road 352 near Ambia. It passes through the small towns of Dunnington and Freeland Park, then crosses State Road 18. It passes through the town of Raub where it crosses the Kankakee, Beaverville and Southern Railroad on its way from Earl Park northwest through Sheldon, Illinois. The northern terminus at U.S. Route 24/U.S. Route 52 about two miles (3 km) directly west of Kentland. The highway is mostly within Benton County, but the northernmost portion, about two miles (3 km) long, is in Newton County.
State Road 75 in the U.S. state of Indiana consists of two discontinuous north-south segments.
The southern section is about 37 miles (60 km) long. It begins at U.S. Route 40 at the Putnam-Hendricks county line and runs northward through the towns of Coatesville and North Salem in Hendricks County, and Jamestown and Advance in Boone County. There is a junction with U.S. Route 136 at Jamestown, and a junction with Interstate 74 just to the north. The northern terminus is at State Road 47 in the town of Thorntown.
Length: 22.7 mi (36.5 km)
The northern section is 22.7 miles (36.5 km) long. It begins at U.S. Route 421 / State Road 38 / State Road 39 in Frankfort in Clinton County and runs northward, crossing State Road 26 east of Rossville, and passing through the town of Flora where it crosses State Road 18. The northern terminus is at State Road 218 in the town of Camden in Carroll County.
In August 2008, the Indiana Department of Transportation awarded Carroll County a grant of $1.2 million to be used to extend the road 3 miles (4.8 km) north, to connect with the planned relocation of State Road 25.
When the Glover Cary Bridge between Owensboro, Kentucky and Rockport, Indiana opened in September 1940, its northern end connected to a new nine-mile (14 km) stretch of state highway through Spencer County that directed traffic to State Road 66. As the Kentucky highway which connected to the bridge was designated Kentucky State Route 75, Indiana gave its connector road the same number.
In 1954, U.S. Route 231 was extended through Kentucky and Indiana, and the southernmost stretch of 231 in Indiana was routed along State Road 75. The Indiana Department of Highways removed State Road 75 from U.S. 231 in Spencer County by the early 1980s, along with all of U.S. 231's other concurrent designations throughout the state (others included State Road 45 and State Road 43).
In October 2002, with the opening of the William H. Natcher Bridge and the relocation of U.S. 231, this segment of highway was again redesignated, this time as the southern leg of State Road 161.
