Ohio State Route 199 is fairly long for a three-digit route in Ohio, and it runs in north-central Ohio, from Perrysburg to Upper Sandusky. The northern end in Perrysburg is downtown, at an intersection with US Route 20; this intersection is a shared terminus with Ohio Route 795, which stems toward the east. From here, Ohio Route 199 maintains a south-southeasterly course to Fostoria, where it joins US Route 23 south. At Carey, Ohio Route 199 splits from US Route 23 to run south-southeasterly again for its last stretch. In Upper Sandusky, Ohio Route 199 serves as a business route to US Route 23. It meets the US highway on both sides of town, but the southern encounter with US Route 23 marks the final endpoint of the route.
My photo of Ohio State Route 199 comes from the north side of Upper Sandusky, at the interchange where it meets a concurrency of US Route 30 and US Route 23. This marks the northern end of the virtual "business route" I mentioned before. The signage depicted is the northern trailblazer provided to reassure northbound travelers leaving the interchange. The photo seen here was taken in October 2016, during the massive detour north to Toledo on the way home from West Virginia. Back to Ohio Routes 100-199. Back to the Ohio main page.
