State Route 162 Connector (SR 162 Conn.) is a one-and-a-half-mile-long (2.4 km) special route of SR 162 southwest of Porterdale. The road, also known as Jackson Road, begins at an intersection with SR 162 in a rural area. It heads north, passing numerous homes and wooded areas, then makes a sweeping S-curve before heading north again. Except near its midpoint, where it passes an auto dealership and a general store, SR 162 Conn. passes through residential areas. The road comes to an end at a stop-controlled intersection with SR 81 inside the town limits of Porterdale.
