I would refer to this page as the US 30 corridor. However, I have section covering the Lincoln Highway/US 30 exculsively and I did not want to cause confusion between the two pages/sections. If you have a better name for this region (and is applicable!) please see the e-mail listings below. - SJG

Ashland County

Memorial, along the eastside of I-71 to a fallen trooper. I-71 is named in his honor through here.

I didn't know nice people had a home location. On I-71 Northbound approaching US 250

Mohican St. Park/Forest

Mohican Forest

This path leads to a police shooting range, I don't know if this was a former routing for the road to the right.

Memorial Shrine Dedicated to those who have given the greatest sacrifice for our country.
All Mohican photos were taken along Oh 97 between Butler and Loudenville

Wayne County

Incomplete interchanges are not common in rural areas, and neither are supplemental signs informing travellers that there is no re-entry, especially in this color scheme. (This supplemental sign is a recent replacement; the former supplemental sign did have the more conventional colors and font). On Interstate 71 Southbound.

At some point along Oh 3 in Southern Wayne Co, the trees open up and you can see all the way to Wheeling (well not quite)! Closer to the truth is that this is a huge expanse of Holmes County. Pleasant to the eyes.

Stark County

Future US 62, Alliance and Future Ohio 14, Salem

The freeway/expressway carrying US 62 east from Canton continues to Ohio 225 north of Alliance where it abruptly ends. Plans show it as part of a proposed highway also incorporating the existing northern bypass of Salem (in part US 62 and Ohio 45) and continuing to the Pennsylvania state line where it would connect with the four-lane-divided PA 51. US 62 currently leaves the western segment of the existing highway at the Ohio 173 interchange west of Alliance, and the highway continues unnumbered (although ODOT calls it "US 62 Future" and "US 62 T" in its records -- see this page). To assist motorists, it is signed as [TO][NORTH][Ohio 225] going east and [TO][WEST][US 62] going west. The unsigned portion of the eastern (Salem) segment (between Ohio 14 and US 62/Ohio 45) is signed as [TO][EAST][US 62] and [TO][NORTH][Ohio 45] going east and [TO][WEST][Ohio 14] going west (officially called "Ohio 14 Future"/"Ohio 14 F" -- see this page and this page).

West end of the Alliance segment. Ohio 225 doesn't actually go to Ravenna.

East end of the Alliance segment

The highway right-of-way ends immediately east of the Ohio 225 overpass at the woods in the photo -- there is no visible sign whatsoever of future expansion beyond that point.

"Junction To West 62"

This sign on Ohio 225 Northbound approaching the east end of the Alliance segment is consistent with the signage on the freeway westbound, but doesn't actually make logical sense.


"Begin" plaques for routes are no longer used in Ohio, but here's an older one which still survives. These assemblies are in the former style of standard Ohio route marker assemblies. Ohio 43 is split onto two one-way streets at this point (Walnut and Cherry Avenues NE). On 12th Street NE Eastbound at Walnut Avenue NE

Sandor has always disliked small shields for 3 digit routes. This one is just beyond the Ohio 43 street pair (from above).

Ohio 43 Southbound follows Walnut Avenue NE when Walnut splits from Market Avenue N. Because Walnut is one-way southbound, there is no interference between Walnut and Market N Southbound, so through traffic gets continuous green through arrows (the word at the top of the sign on the right is "CONTINUOUS"), and therefore the yellow through arrow is not needed in the doghouse signal.

The I-77/US 30/US 62 interchange

This is Canton's largest and most complicated interchange (map). It is mostly elevated over features that predate it.

Approaching the interchange

At the interchange

The signs for the US 30/US 62 ramp on I-77 Southbound have a space which could accomodate another route marker.

Under the interchange

This is where two-way Cleveland Avenue splits into one-way-northbound Cleveland Avenue and one-way-southbound McKinley Avenue (this all used to be Ohio 8). The large bridge in the foreground is the US 30 freeway and the smaller one behind it carries the ramp from US 30 Westbound to both directions of I-77.

Columbiana County

It appears the "south" direction sign has popped off the Oh 9 Shield. Included is a rickity old RR bridge over said highway.
