Ohio State Route 129
According to directoryaah, State Route 129 or OH-129 is a state route in the U.S. state of Ohio. The road and highway connects the city of Hamilton in the northern Cincinnati metropolitan area with the Interstate Highway network. The road is a highway from Interstate 75 to Hamilton, and a regular road to the Indiana border. The route is 42 kilometers long.
OH-129 begins on the border with the state of Indiana, where OH-126 also begins. The road heads east through an area of scattered settlement and reaches the city of Hamilton after more than 15 kilometers. The road then leads through downtown Hamilton, where it crosses the Great Miami River. A 2×2 divided highway starts on the east side of the center, which turns into a freeway after a few kilometers . The highway runs through suburban areas well north of Cincinnati. The freeway and OH-129 terminate at an interchange with Interstate 75, 20 miles north of Cincinnati.
Since the 1960s, people have wanted to connect the industrial city of Hamilton to I-75, but for years it didn’t happen. Construction of the highway only started in 1997, which was opened to traffic in the fall of 1999. The highway primarily serves Hamilton and new suburban areas north of Cincinnati.
There are plans to extend the highway 8 kilometers further east to Interstate 71, but so far it seems that little progress has been made. The cost is estimated at approximately $100 million. One problem is that the area between I-75 and I-71 is largely built-up and no logical route has been kept clear.
The highway section has between 25,000 and 39,000 vehicles per day.
Ohio State Route 161
State Route 161 or OH-161 is a state route and partial freeway in the U.S. state of Ohio. The road forms an east-west route through the vast Columbus region, from Mutual to Alexandria for a distance of 93 kilometers. Between Huber Ridge and Alexandria, OH-161 is a freeway for 17 miles.
Most of the route is a secondary main road between Mutual and Alexandria over a length of 93 kilometers. The road intersects the US 33 in the Dublin suburb of Columbus and passes through the north of that city. From Interstate 270 orbital, SR-161 forms a highway called the New Albany Expressway. The highway portion is about 16 miles (16 km) long and runs east along New Albany and merges at Alexandria into State Route 37, which continues as a freeway toward Newark.
Circa 1995-1996, the freeway opened between I-270 and New Albany. In 2008 an extension of the freeway to Alexandria opened. At the time, the connecting State Route 37 to Granville also opened.
The highway section has a maximum of 66,000 vehicles per 24 hours.
Ohio State Route 176
State Route 176 is a state route and partial freeway in the U.S. state of Ohio. The road forms a north-south route through the Cleveland area, from Richfield into Cleveland. Of the 31 kilometers, 5 kilometers is a highway, the Jennings Freeway.
State Route 176 begins in Richfield on Interstate 77 and heads north through Cleveland’s sparsely built southern suburbs. This part of the route is not a major road. The northernmost portion of State Route 176 is a 2×3 lane freeway. This highway links Interstate 480 and Interstate 71.
State Route 176 originally ran from Akron to Cleveland, but was later shortened with the completion of I-77 south of Cleveland. The highway section, the Jennings Freeway, has been constructed in two phases. In 1968, the northern section opened, which was basically just a fork of I-71. On December 8, 1998, most of the highway opened between I-480 and Denison Avenue.
Ohio State Route 193
According to ehotelat, State Route 193 is a state route and partial freeway in the U.S. state of Ohio. The road forms a north-south route from Youngstown to North Kingsville near Lake Erie. A small portion in Youngstown is a highway, the rest is a secondary route. The State Route 193 in 93 kilometers long.
The southernmost portion of State Route 193 is part of the Youngstown Loop, a small beltway around Downtown Youngstown. This section has 2×2 lanes and begins at Interstate 680. After just one mile, the Loop becomes US 422 and State Route 193 turns north.
North of Youngstown, State Route 193 is a minor road that does not serve any major towns. This route runs parallel to the freeway State Route 11, so State Route 193 has hardly any importance.
The highway portion of State Route 193 was opened circa 1967 as part of the loop around Youngstown. State Route 193 was created in 1967. The portion north of Youngstown has never had any significance because State Route 11 was being constructed parallel to it as a freeway at the same time.
