State Road 225 is a short connector highway that exists entirely within Tippecanoe County in the U.S. state of Indiana.

Route description[edit]

State Road 225 is a 4-mile (6.4 km) highway that connects State Road 43 at its west end with the State Road 25 at its east end. The highway passes through the town of Battle Ground, Indiana. The highway passes a service entrance to Prophetstown State Park.

The most distinctive feature of this highway is the Jewettsport Ford Bridge [2] over the Wabash River. The bridge is a one-lane truss bridge erected in 1912 and rehabilitated in 1989.[3] In order to control the flow of traffic across the bridge, there is a traffic light at either end.

SR 225 at its southeastern end lies on low-lying land, which floods occasionally.[4] When the Wabash level reaches 16 feet, the fields near SR 225 are flooded,[5] and SR 225 itself is flooded when the Wabash reaches 17 feet or higher.[6] The section of SR 225 between old SR 25 and Battle Ground is closed when flooded.[7]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Tippecanoe County.
