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 I-65 in Lafayette to I-69 in 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 whilepromoting economic development
across Tippecanoe, Carroll and Cass counties.
