State Road 135 (SR 135) in the U.S. State of Indiana is a road that connects Indianapolis with the Ohio River; for the most part it is a two-lane road.

Route description[edit]

The southern terminus is the Matthew E. Welsh Bridge on the east side of Mauckport. The bridge connects to Kentucky Route 79 in Brandenburg, Kentucky on the south side of the river.

The road runs north along rolling terrain in Harrison and Washington counties. It continues north through hilly country, passing Starve Hollow Lake State Recreation Area in Jackson County and the Brown County State Park. It then passes into the flatter terrain of Johnson and Marion counties. The northern terminus is at U.S. Route 31 on the south side of Indianapolis, about 0.5 miles (0.80 km) south of its interchange with Interstate 465.

History[edit]

State Road 135 was known as State Road 35 until U.S. Route 35 was commissioned in Indiana.

State Road 135 previously terminated a few miles farther north in the city, but was shifted down to its current northernmost location of Thompson Road when U.S. Highways and Indiana State Roads were all rerouted around major cities onto available bypasses in the early 1990s.
