State Road 120

SR 120 is one of three three-digit roads that shared its number with an Ohio Road (along with Indiana 121 and Historic Indiana 122). This road also was given the same number in Michigan, so at one time it was possible to travel from Elkhart to Toledo on a numbered alternate route that avoided much of the traffic (compared to US 20) and gave the passenger some different scenery along the way.

While that road still runs pretty much uninterrupted, Michigan has since decommissioned its stretch of 120 and applied the number elsewhere in the state. Ohio 120 still runs over the same routing.

There were plans to bend the road south at County Road 17 east of Elkhart to where CR 17 meets up with US 20. Although some change makes sense since the road ends abruptly at Middleton Road, the change could not be finalized. As a result, Elkhart CR 17 remains the only NHS highway in Indiana not controlled by INDOT.

If the state ever follows through with re-routing SR 120, it would end where US 20 and CR 17 currently intersect
