    Original northwestern terminus: US 34 west of New London
    Original southeastern terminus: US 34 southeast of New London
    Counties: Henry, Des Moines
    Paving history: The entire road was paved at the time of designation.
    Replaced by: Local roads (Main Street in New London); this unsigned highway was designated to a former segment of US 34 in 2000 after the four-lane bypass of New London opened. In December 2003 Jeff Morrison found out that a Business US 34 was planned to follow this route, but no signs were posted aside from green "New London Business District" signs along US 34.
    Iowa 232
    Designated: January 8, 1931
    Decommissioned: July 14, 1980
    Original western terminus: Earlham
    Original eastern terminus: US 169 in De Soto
    Counties: Dallas, Madison
    Paving history: Unpaved at designation, it was paved in 1955.
    Major alignment changes: After IA 90 (III) was extended to Dexter in 1938, superseding its easternmost segment, IA 232 angled southward and then westward into Earlham along gravel roads. In 1955 it was realigned to become a straight north-south spur from IA 90 into Earlham; the north end became an interchange with I-80 — which was built right over part of IA 90 — in 1966.
    Replaced by: County Road P57 (at decommissioning)
    Iowa 233
    Designated: January 7, 1931

    Iowa 234
    Designated: January 7, 1931
    Decommissioned: August 21, 1994
    Original northern terminus: US 30 in State Center
    Original southern terminus: Rhodes; on December 1, 1935, it was straightened to end at the IA 88 (later IA 64, then IA 330) diagonal due south of State Center after that city objected to the Highway Commission's plans to decommission the road and reassign the number to the Rhodes-Melbourne spur. It was truncated at County Road E63 (formerly IA 235 and IA 245) on December 26, 1989.
    Counties: Marshall
    Paving history: Unpaved at designation, the segment south of IA 235 was paved in 1956. The segment north of there was gravel at the time of decommissioning and remains that way today.
    Replaced by:
  • IA 235 (II), later IA 245 (II) (spur from Rhodes to the relocated segment in 1935)
  • County Road S52 (paved segment south of E63 in 1989).
  • Unnumbered county road, with the E-911 name Durham Avenue (at decommissioning).
  • Former terminus photos
    Iowa 235 (I)
    Designated: January 7, 1931
    Decommissioned: December 1, 1935
    Original western terminus: IA 234 northeast of Rhodes
    Original eastern terminus: Melbourne
    Counties: Marshall
    Paving history: There were no paved segments.
    Replaced by: Unnumbered county road (present-day 285th Street).
    Iowa 235 (II)
    Designated: December 1, 1935 (number approved August 20)
    Decommissioned: November 9, 1966
    Original western terminus: Rhodes
    Original eastern terminus: IA 234 in southwestern Marshall County
    Counties: Marshall
    Paving history: Unpaved at designation, the entire road was paved in 1956.
    Replaced by: IA 245 (II) to avoid conflict with I-235. It replaced part of IA 234 after it was straightened south of State Center. On July 10, 1935, this road (along with an extension eastward to the IA 88 diagonal at Melbourne) was numbered as IA 234 after the existing 234 was supposed to have been decommissioned; the IA 235 number was assigned to a spur route to Pilot Knob State Park (which eventually became IA 332 instead). However, after State Center objected to its decommissioning, the existing IA 234 remained on the state highway system and the new IA 235 was truncated to end at 234 rather than Melbourne.
    Iowa 236
    Designated: March 17, 1931
    Decommissioned: April 3, 1987
    Original northern terminus: Templeton
    Original southern terminus: The junction of US 71 and IA 141
    Counties: Carroll
    Paving history: The entire road was paved at the time of designation.
    Replaced by: Local roads (Main and 2nd Streets) in Templeton (it made a turn to the west before ending) and County Road N18

    Iowa 237
    Designated: April 14, 1931
    Decommissioned: April 10, 1981
    Original northern terminus: IA 9
    Original southern terminus: Ocheyedan; it was truncated at the north city limits on July 1, 1980.
    Counties: Osceola
    Paving history: The entire road was paved at the time of designation.
    Replaced by: County Road L58
    Former terminus photos
    Iowa 238
    Designated: April 14, 1931
    Decommissioned: July 1, 2003
    Original northern terminus: Harris
    Original southern terminus: IA 9
    Counties: Osceola
    Paving history: The entire road was paved at the time of designation.
    Replaced by: County Road M20
    Note: Per the legal description, IA 238 was originally decommissioned on April 10, 1981, at the same time as IA 237. However, on August 26, 1987, the decommissioning was voided due to Iowa Code Section 306.44, which voided any transfers that occurred after April 1, 1981, unless they were mutually agreed upon by the affected jurisdictions. This explains IA 238's absence from the 1983 and 1986 state transportation maps.
