The Taylor-Southgate Bridge over the Ohio River in Cincinnati.
US 27 in Kentucky comes from the city of Newport and crosses the Ohio River via the Taylor-Southgate Bridge to Cincinnati. US 27 then runs through downtown Cincinnati and intersects Interstate 71 and Interstate 75. In northwest Cincinnati, US 27 briefly coincides with Interstate 74. US 27 then forms an urban arterial through the northwestern suburbs of Cincinnati and intersects Interstate 275.. US 27 then leaves the urban area and runs just west of the city of Hamilton, where the wooded hills give way to flatter pastures. After Oxford, the Indiana border follows, US 27 in Indiana then continues to Richmond.
US 27 was created in 1926. The southern starting point at the time was the city of Cincinnati. In 1928 the route was extended further south. US 27 was never a major road for Ohio, and is primarily used for urban traffic in the metropolitan area of Cincinnati. There is no highway built parallel to it.
US 27 crosses the Taylor-Southgate Bridge, the first bridge at this location opened as early as 1891 and was the second bridge over the Ohio River in Cincinnati. The bridge was demolished in 1992 and replaced by a new bridge in 1995. In the meantime, traffic on US 27 was diverted via nearby bridges.
US 36 in Ohio
According to Toppharmacyschools, US 36 is a US Highway in the US state of Ohio. The road forms an east-west route through the center of the state, from the Indiana border at Palestine to Uhrichsville in the east of the state. The route avoids major cities and is of relatively little importance on Ohio ‘s highway network. The route is 330 kilometers long.
US 36 in Indiana comes from Indianapolis but forms a somewhat secondary route east of that city, which is also the case in Ohio. US 36 is largely a simple single-lane road in western Ohio. US 36 passes through flat farmland, piggybacking on the bypass of US 127 past Greenville but through Piqua. In Piqua one crosses the Miami River, after which a connection to the Interstate 75 follows. Then follows an 80-kilometer route to Marysville, this part is also single-lane and leads through the town of Urbana. There is a bypass around Marysville, with US 36 piggybacking on US 33 as a freeway.
US 36 then curves north of Columbus. US 36 passes through the town of Delaware and crosses US 23 there. East of Delaware, US 36 is a 2×2 divided highway for 10 kilometers to the junction with Interstate 71. East of this, US 36 is again a single-lane road.
East of I-71, US 36 winds through an area with a little more forest. The road here often has a secondary character and is largely a single carriageway that leads through all places on the route. The largest place on this part of the route is Mount Vernon. Between Coshocton and Interstate 77 at Newcomerstown, US 36 is better developed as a 2×2 divided highway through a valley. US 36 then becomes single-lane again and ends at US 250 at Uhrichsville.
US 36 was created in 1926 but did not run into Ohio until 1932, when its eastern terminus was changed from Indianapolis to US 22 at Cadiz in eastern Ohio. In 1974 the eastern terminus was shortened about 35 kilometers to US 250 at Uhrichsville.
The US 36 has always been of a secondary character in Ohio, partly because it does not serve large towns, the US 36 runs just a little north of the capital Columbus. Partly because of this, the US 36 has mostly remained a single lane road. The section between Delaware and I-71 was widened to 2×2 lanes in two phases in 1970 and 1976. The section between Coshocton and I-77 was widened to 2×2 lanes in two periods, in 1977 the section along Newcomerstown was widened to 2×2 lanes and around 1998/1999 the section from Coshocton to Newcomerstown.
