State Road 234 exists in two sections in Indiana. The western portion begins at the Illinois border from a Vermilion County, Illinois, county road. It runs east from there to U.S. Route 136 (US 136) near Jamestown. Much of the route is a scenic, two-lane road with very tight turns. The primary access to Shades State Park is located along SR 234.

Its eastern portion goes from the U.S. Route 36/State Road 67 concurrency in McCordsville, Indiana. Then eastern terminus is at an intersection with State Road 38.

Route description[edit]

Western section[edit]

From the western terminus SR 234 heads east towards Cayuga. SR 234 passes through Cayuga and heads east towards Kingman. East of Kingman SR 234 has an intersection with U.S. Route 41. SR 234 heads east then southeast towards Ladoga, passing through intersections with State Road 341, State Road 47, and U.S. Route 231. SR 234 heads east towards Jamestown, where SR 234 has a concurrency with State Road 75. The concurrency end at the eastern terminus of the western section.[3]

Eastern section[edit]

From US 36/SR 67, SR 234 heads due east towards Kennard, passing through intersection with State Road 9 and State Road 109. SR 234 heads north out of Kennard, 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Kennard SR 234 turns east. The eastern terminus is soon after at SR 38.[4]

History[edit]

A middle section of SR 234 existed in Hamilton County, Indiana, between U.S. Route 31 in Carmel and State Road 37 in Noblesville. The designation in this area has not existed since the late 1970s, but some modern maps still show it running along 131st Street and River Road in Carmel and 146th Street into Fishers and Noblesville.
