Interstate 69 & Indiana 57 south
Interstate 69 and Indiana 57 shields greet motorists south of the County Road 1300 South overpass. Indiana 57 continues with the freeway to Exit 19 as freeway construction replaced the original alignment, which is visible to the right in this scene. Photo taken 01/01/16.
Indiana 57 rejoins its path southwest to Daylight and Evansville Regional Airport (EVV) at Exit 19 in one mile. Photo taken 11/07/11.
Interchange sequence signs were routinely used along the former 20-mile long Interstate 164. The signs are still used along Interstate 69 to provide the distance to various exits around Evansville. The first mileage sign features Boonville-New Harmony Road (Exit 15) and Lynch Road (Exit 10). Photo taken 11/07/11.
Indiana 57 is a 80.1-mile route leading southwest from U.S. 231 near Worthington to Washington, Petersburg, Elnora and U.S. 41 on the north side of Evansville. Much of the route was supplanted by Interstate 69. Photo taken 11/07/11.
Entering the wye interchange (Exit 19) where SR 57 leaves Interstate 69 south. Indiana 57 angles southwest to U.S. 41 by the airport. An older alignment (Petersburg Road) travels to the west through Earle and McCutchanville. Photo taken 11/07/11.

A second wye interchange adds traffic from Indiana 57 and Old Indiana 57 ahead of this reassurance shield. Interstate 164 used to contain blue mile markers in the median at ever 2/10ths of a mile. These were removed whenInterstate 164 became Interstate 69 and new mile markers were added only at each mile and half-mile, consistent with the rest of the I-69 corridor in southern Indiana. Photo taken 01/01/16.
Interstate 164 advances southward another 16.5 miles to U.S. 41. The routing to U.S. 41 is only temporary until the completion of a bridge over the Ohio River. Photo taken 11/07/11.
Booneville-New Harmony Road stretches across Vanderburgh County between St. Wendel and the diamond interchange (Exit 15) with Interstate 69. Photo taken 11/07/11.

Passing the final Interstate 69 shield in the state of Indiana. Interstate 69 will eventually be rerouted onto a new terrain route to Henderson, Kentucky that will include a new bridge over the Ohio River, but for now the interstate continues west to U.S. 41 (Exit 0). Photo taken 01/01/16.

Interstate 164 used to formally end at the Exit 0 collector distributor roadway for U.S. 41. Now a blank "End" sign marks the end of the freeway. Traffic can follow U.S. 41 south to Henderson to pick up Interstate 69 south of there. Photo taken 11/07/11.
West of the exit ramp for Exit 0 a new "End" sign designates the end of the Interstate 69 freeway in southern Indiana, spanning from Bloomington to Evansville. Photo taken 01/01/16.
Following the c/d roadway, the ramp to U.S. 41 north into Evansville departs first. Vincennes, where U.S. 41 joins U.S. 50 on a freeway originally built for Interstate 64, is 50 miles to the north. Photo taken 11/07/11.
