State Road 135

Indiana state road 135 is a long route meandering from Indianapolis down to the Ohio River east of Louisville, Kentucky. Some of the road is still narrow and winding even though this is a relatively major through route, but it is gradually being improved. South of I-64, it is a good two lane highway.

In the 1920s and early 1930s, this road was designated SR 35, but when US 35 came into being in Indiana in 1934, the route number was changed. Also, in the past, SR 135 used to make it all the way to the center of Indianapolis. It now ends just south of I-465 on US 31.
