State Road 641 (SR 641) in the U.S. state of Indiana is a road under construction in Vigo County and will bypass the city of Terre Haute. The new highway will connect with U.S. Route 41 (US 41) in the south and Interstate 70 (I-70) in the north.

Route description

SR 641 is a new freeway southeast of Terre Haute that is currently under construction. The freeway starts at a new interchange along US 41 near Eaton Road in Honey Creek Township and branches off to the northeast toward Woodsmall Road, then turning north. There will be a folded diamond interchange at McDaniel Road, the current north end, with all of the ramps on the southern side of the interchange. To the north of the interchange, the freeway will cross a CSX Railroad line and curve to the east, crossing into Riley Township. SR 641 will meet SR 46 at Riley Road. SR 46 will merge onto the new freeway at this intersection and the two highways will run concurrently together as they curve north to meet I-70. SR 641 will end at the new interchange along I-70 and SR 46 will continue northward on its current highway routing.[1]

History

Construction on SR 641 is planned in four phases. Phase I was scheduled for completion in late 2008. This phase concentrated on the southernmost segment of the new highway from US 41 north and east to Woodsmall Road. Connecting roadways completed in the phase are open to traffic. Phase II construction started in 2009 with a scheduled completion for 2011. This segment runs from Woodsmall Road to Feree Road. Phases III and IV will complete the freeway. Construction on these two phases is scheduled for 2012–15. The entire project was developed to shorten travel times between US 41 and I-70. This new freeway will reduce travel distance by 3.0 miles (4.8 km) and bypass eleven stoplights.[1]

The portion of Phase I from US 41 to McDaniel Road opened to traffic on October 26, 2010.[2][3]
