State Road 25 Hoosier Heartland
The Hoosier Heartland project involved replacing State Road 25, a two-lane rural highway constructed in the 1930s, with a new four-lane, limited-access highway that connects Lafayette to Fort Wayne, where it links to the U.S. 24 Fort to Port highway. A 12-mile stretch of this project – from Lafayette to Delphi – opened to traffic on Oct. 24, 2012. The remaining portion of the highway – from Delphi to Logansport – opened to traffic October 18, 2013. The 36-mile Hoosier Heartland project upgraded the old highway’s 81 at-grade street intersections, three at-grade railroad crossings, and more than 140 private entrances and improved access and safety while promoting economic development across Tippecanoe, Carroll and Cass counties.
