US 112

During its short life in Indiana, US 112's western terminus moved around quite a bit. At one point (during its greatest extent, ironically enough) it was shown on maps as US 112S (probably with the assumption that the road to New Buffalo would be labeled US 112N once the stretch from north of Elkhart to Niles was paved); but that was probably as popular as the US 60N/60E idea was in 1926. In the end, US 112 was responsible for two things in Indiana: US 20 going to (near) Rolling Prairie via New Carlise instead of straight across (on Ind 2), and Elkhart's western bypass (now part of Indiana 19).
