Indiana State Route 662 is a short east-west fragment of a route that was once considerably longer, forming part of a route between Evansville and the next town to the east, Newburgh. The western end is at Interstate 69, formerly Interstate 164, and the eastern end is at the signal with Ellerbusch Road. This makes the length of Indiana Route 662 only a mile and a half in the present day. All too often in Indiana, a municipality will show interest in deciding what happens to the road, and INDOT, eager to absolve itself of financial responsibility, will give the road to said municipality with no regard for maintaining network connectivity. Indiana Route 662 isn't the most egregious example of this, but it happens with a glaring frequency in Indiana.
