Ohio 531 & 534 change over in Geneva-on-the-Lake

Ohio 531 Westbound at Ohio 534 (However, why can't you start over on 531, but you can on 534?)

Note - The US 20 sign assembly's set-up erroneously implies that US 20 turns onto Ohio 534.

This street's asphalt has warned away to show the brick pavement and trolley tracks that was used before.

The detours were due to the reconstruction of the Ohio 45 bridge over I-90 (see below).

I-90 Eastbound at Ohio 45: Reconstructed overpass

In 2001 the two-lane Ohio 45 overpass over I-90 north of Austinburg was demolished and rebuilt as a four-lane overpass due to development at the interchange (news article). For a while, there was no bridge at all over I-90, cutting Ohio 45 into two segments.

During construction

Completed overpass

An unusual aspect about the completed project is that the right lane on the off-ramp is signed thru-right. Although re-entry to the highway from which one has just exited is not usually prohibited, it's not usually identified, either.
Also note the abandoned Stuckey's on the right.

Low-boy sign

This sign, on Brown Road heading away from US 20 in the Saybrook area, is an interesting version of the new Low Ground Clearance sign, the W10-5 (illustration in this manual). There are rumble strips painted alternately red and white approaching the crossing in question (views of crossing).
