Woodyard Road travels roughly northwest from SR 37 and Vernal Pike to Ratliff Road in Ellettsville, a distance of slightly less than three miles. Before the Monon Railroad was abandoned, Woodyard Road crossed the line a little south of Walcott Lane, and travelled parallel to the tracks up to Ratliff Road.
