State Road 38

SR 38 has a general direction of travel that is is west-northwest to east-southeast. It starts in Lafayette at Sagamore Pkwy. (former US 52) and ends at US 35 in the outskirts of Richmond although posted signage shows it ending at I-70. Except for Pendleton, SR 38 goes through the center of the cities it passes through which include Frankfort, Noblesville, and New Castle. The most notable business on SR 38 is the Subaru/Toyota plant in Lafayette.

By and large, SR 38 is a two lane road except in the larger cities such as Lafayette and Noblesville and where it multiplexes with highways around Pendleton.

SR 38 now has a single continuous section after a short time where it ended and picked up on both sides of Pendleton. It now multiplexes with I-69, SR 9, and SR 67 to bypass the center of Pendleton. The gap was created in December, 2004 when the section through Pendleton was decommissioned. The decommission request was made by the City of Pendleton so they could better control truck traffic through the town.
