Road Trip 1926: SR 62

Today’s journey back to 1 October 1926 focuses on a state road that would originally connect the Wabash to the Ohio. In the official press releases, the Indiana State Highway Commission described the new SR 62 as follows: “State Road 62. – What is now State Road 16 from New Albany to Mt. Vernon, with a new addition extending the road west from Mt. Vernon to the Wabash River. This road passes through Corydon, Leavenworth, St. Meinrad, Lincoln City, Gentryville, Booneville and Evansville.”

The section from Mt. Vernon west would be considered an authorized extension, which would finally be added to the state highway system in 1929.
