Indiana 46 goes for 154 miles across the South Central part of Indiana. The highway currently begins at the intersection with U.S. 40 (Wabash Avenue) in Terre Haute and heads toward the southeast past the towns of Riley and Bowling Green. The highway then intersects with U.S. 231 & Indiana 67 in Spencer to become a major highway to the southeast into Bloomington, where it intersects with Indiana 37 (the future Interstate 69). The highway then forms an important east-west road from Bloomington to Columbus, where it intersects with Interstate 65. East of Columbus, Indiana 46 heads northeast to Greensburg where it follows the path of Interstate 74 east past Batesville to its eastern terminus with U.S. 52 west of the Ohio border.
