Ohio State Route 852, like some other Ohio State Routes numbered in the 800s, is a short connector to a bridge over the Ohio River; this state route lies on the west side of Portsmouth, in south-central Ohio. The northern terminus of this tiny route is an interchange between Ohio State Route 73 and US Route 52, the namesake of this state highway numbered in the 800s. Only about three-quarters of a mile south of there, Ohio State Route 852 reaches the Kentucky state line aboard a bridge over the Ohio River. The road continues a very short distance beyond that bridge to a T-intersection with US Route 23.
My photo for Ohio Route 852 signage comes from Ohio Route 73 on the northern leg of the interchange that serves as the northern endpoint for Ohio Route 852. The junction marker along southbound Ohio Route 73 has an angled arrow to the left, which I guess is meant to indicate that exiting to the right to stay on Ohio Route 73 isn't what you need to do in order to reach Ohio 852. This photo was taken in March 2021 as part of the grand tour of southeast Ohio.
