State Road 32 (SR 32) in the U.S. state of Indiana is an east–west state highway in central Indiana that crosses the entire state, covering a distance of about 157 miles (253 km). The western terminus of SR 32 is at the Illinois state line, southeast of Danville, Illinois, where the route becomes a county road. The eastern terminus is at Union City, Indiana, and Union City, Ohio, at the Ohio state border where the highway route becomes Ohio State Route 47.

Route description[edit]

State Road 32 in western Hamilton County

Between the Illinois state line and Crawfordsville, the route runs somewhat concurrently with Interstate 74. East of Crawfordsville, the route is a popular alternate route for traffic from parts north and northeast of Indianapolis heading for westbound I-74.

Between I-65 and I-69, IN-32 travels through one of the highest-growth areas in the entire United States: Hamilton County, Indiana. Continuing east from I-69, IN-32 serves the towns of Anderson, Muncie, and Winchester.

The vast majority of State Road 32 is rural and undivided. Portions of IN-32 between Muncie and Selma are divided.

Future[edit]

The portion of SR 32 stretching from I-65 at Lebanon to I-69 at Pendleton has been proposed as a Future Interstate Highway through one of the highest-growth areas in the United States: Carmel, Westfield, and Noblesville in Hamilton County, to ease congestion from traffic currently flowing across the north side of Indianapolis on I-465. In 2010, the Indiana Department of Transportation proposed this route be numbered I-269, which would designate it as a spur of I-69, according to American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials numbering conventions.
