Indiana State Route 261 is a short north-south connector between Boonville and Newburgh in southwestern Indiana, east of Evansville. The northern end is on the west side of Boonville at Indiana Routes 61 and 62. The southern end is on the north side of Newburgh, at an alignment of Indiana Route 66 that bypasses central Newburgh to the north.
My photo for Indiana State Route 261 is at the southern terminus at Indiana Route 66, on Newburgh's north side. The assembly depicted faces south for northbound traffic, occupying the only approach at this 4-way intersection that isn't a marked highway. INDOT doesn't need to maintain this assembly, as it's for a currently unmarked state route, but it still stands, perhaps as a vestige. Back to the Indiana main page. Back to the home page.
