State Road 252 (SR 252) in the U.S. state of Indiana consists of two segments. The western stretch runs from State Road 37 in Martinsville to State Road 9 between Hope and Shelbyville. The eastern stretch is from U.S. Route 52/State Road 1 in Brookville to the Ohio state line near Scipio, Ohio.

Route description[edit]

Western section[edit]

The western section heads southeast from Martinsville. SR 252 heads southeast until Morgantown where it turns northeast towards Trafalgar. SR 252 heads east from Trafalgar towards U.S. Route 31 (US 31). US 31 and SR 252 have a concurrency that ends near Edinburgh. SR 252 passes through Edinburgh and then east of town SR 252 has an interchange with Interstate 65 (I-65). From I-65, SR 252 heads east towards SR 9, passing through Flat Rock.[2]

Eastern section[edit]

From the western terminus of this section that US 52/SR 1, SR 252 heads east towards Ohio. On the way to Ohio SR 252 passes through Mt. Carmel. At the Ohio state line SR 252 ends at an intersection with Ohio State Route 126 and Ohio State Route 129.[3]


In the 1930s the western section of SR 252 was to end at SR 29, now U.S. Route 421, but the section from I-65 to SR 29 was never built. The western section ended at Flat Rock until a new part of the road was built to SR 9 in the winter of 2005-2006. Originally SR 252 went along Hospital Road and through what is now Camp Atterbury and Atterbury Fish and Wildlife Area. It was moved north to its current location after Camp Atterbury was built.
