State Road 62 in the U.S. State of Indiana is an east–west route that runs 228 miles (367 km) from the Illinois state line in the southwest corner of Indiana to the Louisville, Kentucky area, then northeast toward the Cincinnati, Ohio area.
State Road 62 begins at a toll bridge over the Wabash River between New Haven, Illinois and Posey County. From the east side of Mount Vernon[dubious ] through Evansville, SR 62 is the Lloyd Expressway, a divided expressway-grade highway until reaching U.S. 41 nearly halfway through the city. The expressway contains a mix of intersections and interchanges. Despite the construction delays and need for improvements, the $160 million east–west expressway allows drivers to travel from one end of the city to the other with much greater ease. Plans exist to add additional diamond interchanges as well as a cloverleaf interchange with US 41. Then SR 62 concurs U.S. 41 with SR 66 to Morgan Avenue on which it leaves Evansville. East of Evansville, the four lane divided road continues to Chandler and then on to Boonville then becomes a two-lane road and for much of its trip through Spencer, Perry, Crawford, Harrison and western Floyd counties, it is narrow, winding and hilly.
State Road 62 overlaps Interstate 64, Interstate 265 and SR 265, bypassing the cities of New Albany, Clarksville and Jeffersonville. The highway then turns to the northeast, serving the cities of Charlestown, Hanover and Madison before ending at State Road 262 just south of U.S. Route 50 at Dillsboro.
Before the extension of Interstate 265, State Road 62 went directly through the cities of New Albany, Clarksville, and Jeffersonville.
In the pre-Interstate era, Indiana 62 between Evansville and New Albany was also U.S. Highway 460, a heavily-traveled route between St. Louis, Missouri and Louisville, Kentucky before Interstate 64 supplanted it as a through route.
The highway forms part of the Lincoln Heritage Trail.
SR 62 is known as the Lloyd Expressway within Evansville's city limits.[dubious ] It is named in honor of former Mayor Russell G. Lloyd, Sr. who was assassinated after leaving office in 1980. Evansville residents use the term “expressway” loosely due to the large number of stoplights along the Evansville stretch of the route. It is usually referred to simply as "the Lloyd".
The road was built in various stages and officially opened on July 19, 1988. The west section of the expressway was completed in the 1950s with plans to continue it east at a later date as funding became available.
