As an intrepid traveler, the journey begins on the Indiana Portion of US Route 6 as it crosses the Indiana state line. You’ll be in good company sharing this same Borman Expressway with I-80 and I-94 through Hammond and Gary until you take State Road 51 (SR 51) at exit 15. After a short two mile jaunt south, you make your turn eastward–this leads to Westville where US 421 will become part of your quest before heading another mile southwards towards both US 31 & 35 – then get ready for five more miles navigating along with fellow adventurer/roadie 33 ’til Ligonier! Thereafter is mostly two lane roads throughout much of Indiana en route to Ohio’s stately borders just east of Butler; previously though prior to completion of The Bormann Expressway — thrill seekers would have taken Ridge Rd instead which still offers segments signed Business Undertaker(kidding…we mean “Business”US6).
