Located in south-central Indiana, the shorter southern section of State Road 39 begins at State Road 56 west of Scottsburg. It runs north and passes through Little York, then intersects with State Road 250 just before reaching Brownstown. It is concurrent with State Road 250 until both terminate at U.S. Route 50 in Brownstown.

The much longer northern section starts at State Road 37 in Martinsville, southwest of Indianapolis, and runs north to the Michigan border near Interstate 94 (via M-239). Along the route, it passes through these towns (from south to north):

In the 1960s, State Road 39 was the connector between the west end of Interstate 94 (which ended just north of the Michigan-Indiana border) and the Indiana Toll Road. Hence, a dozen miles of this winding 2-lane road carried all of the heavy traffic between Chicago and Detroit.
