State Road 144 in the U.S. State of Indiana is a highway that exists in two short sections south of Indianapolis.

Route description[edit]

State Road 144 runs from its northwest end at the Eastern terminus of SR 42. It was formerly Indiana State Road 267 and the eastern terminus of Indiana State Road 42 in Mooresville southeast to its parent route, Indiana State Road 44, in Franklin.


The middle one-third of its run, from Indiana State Road 37 near the Morgan/Johnson County line in the west to Indiana State Road 135 in Old Bargersville, Indiana, in the east, was downgraded to county road status in early 2005. This was planned to be the unsigned designation, CR 144. It is one of the very few county roads in Indiana with a numerical designation identical to that of an adjoining state road, similar to how it is done in Florida.
