State Road 48

SR 48 is a discontinuous route that consists of three sections. It is choppy and overtaken by another road between the biggest towns in its corridor, but Indiana 48 still shows itself on both sides of the state, as well as a slight portion of the center. All three sections are generally minor, narrow, and sometimes winding roads, but the easternmost part near Lawrenceburg has recently been rebuilt.
 
Eastern Section: Napoleon (SR 229) < 33 miles > Lawrenceburg (US 50)
Western Section: (SR 63) < 29.8 miles > (SR 157)
Central Section: (SR 43) < 8.1 miles > Bloomington (SR 37)
