Interstate 65

I-65 is pretty much the main Highway in Indiana, connecting three of the five largest urban areas in Indiana (Chicago, Indianapolis, and Louisville). The southern portion goes along US 31, while the northern portion serves the same purpose US 152 was intended for -- an Indianapolis-to-Chicago route.

Originally, I-65 ended at the Indiana Toll Road (I-90). The cry of thousands of steelworkers having to work their way around the roads of Gary combined with the abandonment of a railroad line that ran just north of the I-65/I-90 interchange allowed for an extension of the road to US 12/US 20; with a light placed at a steel plant entrance. In 2003, a reconstruction of the I-65/I-90/US 12/US 20 interchange removed the light from this portion of the interstate.

I-65 had two of the first sections of interstate to open in Indiana. The section around Lebanon and the section south of Seymour to Louisville were both completed in the early 1960s. The final section of I-65 in Indiana was completed in 1976. This was in downtown Indianapolis. I-65 has several six or more lane sections in Clark, Johnson, Marion, and Lake Counties. I-65 in Lake County is also known as the Casimir Pulaski Memorial Highway. Unlike the Borman, I-65 is rarely referred to by this name. Likewise, the name Kenneth Baby face Edmonds Highway for I-65 in Marion County is only seen on a sign.
