State Road 26 is an east–west road in central Indiana in the United States that crosses the entire state from east to west, covering a distance of about 150 miles (240 km).

Route description[edit]

State Road 26 begins on Indiana's western border with Illinois near the town of Ambia. It ends on Indiana's eastern border near the town of Fort Recovery, Ohio. In Illinois, State Road 26 becomes Illinois Route 9 and in Ohio it turns into Ohio State Route 119.

With the exception of a stretch on the east side of Lafayette, State Road 26 is an undivided surface road.

State Road 26 formerly passed through the campus of Purdue University in West Lafayette, where it was concurrent with State Street, and through Lafayette as South Street and Columbia Street. The segments between the Interstate 65 interchange in the east and the U.S. Route 231 junction in the west were redesignated as city streets in December 2013;[2] the route is now discontinuous.[citation needed]

It has an interchange with Interstate 65 east of Lafayette and with Interstate 69 east of Fairmount. Other significant intersections are with U.S. Route 41 in western Warren County, near the Illinois state line, and with U.S. Route 31 west of Kokomo.
