State Road 37A (SR 37A) was a State Road in the American state of Indiana. It ran from Indianapolis to Noblesville from 1959 until the 1970s.

Route description[edit]

SR 37A (Allisonville Road) began at its southern terminus with its parent route, SR 37 (now Binford Boulevard), near the Indiana State Fairgrounds. The route traveled northeast crossing 52nd and 56th streets, Kessler Boulevard East Drive, and 62nd, 65th, 71st, 75th, and 79th streets, before it reached an intersection with East 82nd Street near Castleton Square Mall. The route then interchanged with Interstate 465 (I-465 Exit 35), followed by intersections with 86th, 91st, and 96th streets, then crossed into Hamilton County and the town of Fishers.

In Fishers, the route intersected East 106th Street near Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport. The route intersected 116th, 126th, and 131st streets, then passed by Conner Prairie Interactive History Park. The route then crossed 141st and 146th streets, entering the city of Noblesville. Just south of downtown Noblesville, Allisonville Road turned north and becomes South 10th Street. In downtown, the route reached an intersection with SR 32/SR 38 (Conner Street). North of downtown, the route once again turned northeast and became Allisonville Road. The route then intersected East 191st Street. After East 191st Street, the route turned east and crossed Cumberland Road. After Cumberland Road, the route turned southeast and reached its northern terminus at its parent route, SR 37 (Strawtown Pike) on the far north side of Noblesville.

History[edit]

Beginning sometime between 1957 and 1959, the designation SR 37A was first used for the old routing of SR 37 between Indianapolis and Noblesville.[2][3] The southern end of the road was moved to SR 100 in late 1963 or early 1964.[4][5] In late 1964 or early 1965 the route was shortened at the north end, with the new end being at an intersection with SR 32 and SR 38.[5][6] In late 1969 or early 1970 the designation of SR 37A in Hamilton County was removed.[7][8] The state highway commission removed the last segment of SR 37A in Marion County in ether late 1972 or early 1973.[9][10]
