State Road 64 in the U.S. State of Indiana is an east–west highway that crosses most of the southern portion of the state, covering a distance of about 107 miles (172 km).

The route parallels Interstate 64, which often causes confusion, as the widest distance between them is 20 miles at the Wabash River, and both routes exist in Crawford, Dubois, Floyd, Gibson, and Harrison Counties. It is often referred to as Indiana 64 to distinguish it from the Interstate.

Route description[edit]

State Road 64 begins at a bridge across the Wabash River at Mount Carmel, Illinois, connecting it with Illinois Route 15. It ends at Interstate 64 near Edwardsville. For the bulk of its length, it runs parallel to Interstate 64 and approximately 30 miles (48 km) north of it. Most of the route is two-lane undivided highway, with undivided multi-lane segments in the city of Princeton near the junction of U.S. Route 41, and through the city of Huntingburg as well as near English.

Traffic Congestion[edit]

Traffic conditions on the stretch between Princeton and Mount Carmel are notorious for often being congested with large amounts of coal trucks between local mines and Gibson Generating Station, located near the route's western terminus and Illinois resident employees of both the plant and Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana and suppliers in Princeton using the same two lane road in their commute often result in severe traffic congestion during two distinct periods in the day.

Until late 2010, at the western end of the highway were two very narrow bridges that typically handled[citation needed] at least 900-1200 vehicles a day, doubling to ~2000 a day vehicles during Mount Carmel's Ag Days, Lone Ranger Festival, and other holidays. Excavation began on a parallel replacement bridge in April 2008, and the new bridge was opened (with the highway realigned appropriately) in December 2010.
