Road Trip 1926: SR 57

Today’s Road Trip 1926 focuses on a small state road that would eventually become a bit longer…and now kind of replaced. (What is it with roads ending in “7” and I-69 taking over? US 27, SR 37, SR 57?) The official description, as published in the newspapers in late September, 1926, is as follows: “State Road 57 – What is now known as State Road 28, from Petersburg to Bloomfield.” The maps that I made show SR 57 ending at the new SR 54 west of Bloomfield. SR 54 ending in Bloomfield itself, so it is possible that SR 57 multiplexed with it into Bloomfield. Either way, SR 57 was about one mile from connecting to SR 67, giving access to Indianapolis and beyond.
