Highway 267 between Brownsburg and Plainfield becomes a state road (1955)

source: Plainfield Messenger (Plainfield, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, December 8, 1955 - page 1, column 7:

According to a newspaper article, in December 1955 the state took over control of highway 267 between Brownsburg, Avon and Plainfield after years of requests by Hendricks County officials to do so. The heavy travel by trucks and cars meant it was in constant need of repair, and the state taking it over meant they would now be responsible for its repair and maintenance. Part of the state takeover meant the road would receive state highway markers as well as speed zone signs.
