Indiana State Route 26 is an important east-west route spanning the entire width of the state, where northern Indiana meets central Indiana. Well, it would span the entire width of the state if Lafayette and West Lafayette didn't delete their sections of the route through town, in a uniquely Indiana-esque move where segments of state highways get deleted left and right. Indiana Route 26 begins at the Illinois border, where Illinois Highway 9 crosses over just south of Ambia, and it runs east to be suspended by US Routes 52 and 231 in West Lafayette. Then, it picks up again at Interstate 65 on the east end of Lafayette, and runs across the remainder of the state to become Ohio State Route 119 near Fort Recovery, Ohio.
I can't find the full context photo, but I do have this one at hand. This is the exact image from which I cropped the shield cutout image. This is at the north end of the concurrency shared by US Route 41 and Indiana Route 26, facing south. At this intersection, Indiana Route 26 comes from Illinois heading east, and joins US Route 41 south for a bit. Back to the Indiana main page. Back to the home page.
