State Road 2

In the early twenties, SR 2 actually ran over the Lincoln Highway from Illinois to South Bend and Fort Wayne all the way across the state (see map link below), but by 1925 it had been moved to run over what would become US 30. With the commissioning of the US numbering system, it was again renumbered over the Old Lincoln Highway between Valparaiso and Fort Wayne, then continued southwest to Illinois. With the commissioning of US 33 in 1935, it was shortened to the route between the Illinois line west of Lowell and South Bend. Finally, it was shortened to end at the new US 31 bypass instead of downtown in South Bend in the 1980s.

SR 2 is a divided highway from La Porte to South Bend and on the multiplexes around Valaparaiso. Otherwise, it is a two lane road.
