I believe that the plan is that once 69 is signed continuously, 37 will be decommissioned between Bloomington and Fishers.

So that means that 37 will be three widely-spaced segments, Tell City to Bloomington, Fishers to Marion, and Ft. Wayne to the Ohio state line.  Sounds to me like a renumbering or two (especially the last segment) is in order, but then I forgot that we're talking about Indiana.  :)

Given the relatively short length of the SR-37 stretch between I-469 and the Ohio state line, there's a better chance that INDOT might just turn that segment over to Allen County. If INDOT were to decommission that stretch of SR-37, it would likely go by its local name, the Maysville Pike.

37 used to be routed along 9 from Marion to Huntington and 24 from Huntington to Fort Wayne, so at one point it was continuous. I haven't seen any reasoning as to why the signage got pulled between Marion and Fort Wayne.

Google Maps has moved the I-69 shield up to IN-144. IN-37 the rest of the way to I-465.

might have been to lower mileage. i think overlaps count too for 2 routes (or more). they stopped signing 38 in frankfort too for some reason.

I got this update regarding about the new interstate up to S.R. 144.
INDIANAPOLIS (Nov. 28, 2022) Construction crews are completing the final steps needed to convert State Road 37 to Interstate 69 between Martinsville and Bargersville.

Banta Road, near the Morgan-Johnson county line, is expected to close permanently at S.R. 37 on Wednesday, Nov. 30. This will allow crews time to remove the intersection pavement and traffic signal before winter and begin rebuilding the shoulders and ditches.

With the removal of Banta Road, the first traffic signal north of Evansville will be at Smith Valley Road. Drivers should stay alert in the area as other motorists adjust to the transition.

S.R. 144 interchange

Three of the four ramps at the S.R. 144 interchange are now open, providing access to the area near Banta Road. The ramp from S.R. 144 onto southbound I-69 is on track to open in the next two to three weeks.

By the end of the year, expect S.R. 37 to be officially signed as I-69 and the speed limit to be increased to 70 mph from S.R. 44 in Martinsville to S.R. 144 in Bargersville.

Until the fourth and final ramp opens, motorists can enter southbound S.R. 37 traffic at County Line Road, Fairview Road, Smith Valley Road and Henderson Ford Road.
