State Road 267 in the U.S. state of Indiana is a 30-mile (48 km) north–south route connecting Interstate 65 in Boone County with State Road 42 in Mooresville. It passes through the towns of Brownsburg, Avon, Plainfield, and Mooresville in the counties of Boone, Hendricks, and Morgan.

Route description[edit]

The southern terminus of SR 267 is at an intersection with SR 42. SR 267 heads north toward Interstate 70 and U.S. Route 40 in Plainfield. After Plainfield SR 267 heads north toward U.S. Route 36 in Avon. After Avon SR 267 heads north toward U.S. Route 136 and Interstate 74 in Brownsburg. After Brownsburg SR 267 heads north towards its northern terminus at I-65 in Boone County.[2]

History[edit]

Between 1917 and 1926 SR 267 was an unsigned route. The southern terminus at one point was at State Road 37, following the route of State Road 144. In the 1960s SR 267 was moved to a new route east of the old route, between I-70 and US 40. A large section of State Road 267 was decommissioned by the Indiana Department of Transportation in the winter of 2013[3] and turned over to local units of government. The areas of the route south of Interstate 74 and Brownsburg and north of the Avon and Plainfield municipal boundary are no longer State Road 267, with the respective portions of the road being turned over to the Town of Avon, the Town of Brownsburg, and Hendricks County [4]
