Road Trip 1926: US 150

Today is the last of the “Road Trip 1926” series. The description released by the Indiana State Highway Commission is as follows: “U. S. Route 150 – From New Albany to its intersection with U. S. Route 50, between Loogootee and Shoals, passing through Palmyra, Paoli, West Baden and French Lick. This is now part of State Road 5.”

Though that is the official description, it never actually entered West Baden or French Lick. But it didn’t miss West Baden by much. From Paoli east, the route of US 150 was part of the Dixie Highway. (I discussed the reason for this in the article “Winners and Losers, Routing the Dixie Highway Through Indiana.”
