State Road 4

State Road 4 is a discontinuous route consisting of three sections. All three have existed separate from each other since the beginning of the present-day numbering system.

The middle section of SR 4 was the original section, having been around since the beginning of the present-day numbering system in 1926. The western section was built and commissioned separately, and probably with the idea of connecting with the original 4 in mind. For some reason (probably lack of perceived necessity) the connection was never made.

Most of the east section was originally known as SR 727 back when US 27 ran through Auburn and Angola as a major road, and it hooked up with US 27 at Pleasant Lake. When I-69 was finished (and US 27 routed onto that), the east-west portion of old SR 727 west of I-69 was redesinated as SR 4.
