OH: Whither Ohio Business routes (again)
« on: July 30, 2019, 10:45:45 pm »
Yesterday, while attempting to follow US 35, from I-71 to I-64, I took a brief detour to 'clinch' the *designated* (by us) Business route for US 35 in Jackson, Oh. I found only one Bus. US 35 sign, and that was on Bridge St, adjacent to a North Oh 93 sign assembly. There is no mention of Business US 35 along Broadway, between DT Jackson and US 35 (which is marked by us as part of said route), and the only reference to any business routes from US 35, is a generic 'Jackson Business Highway Route' sign, for those going east (south) bound on US 35.

So, is this enough to keep the route on the table? If so, I know Van Wert (Bus. US 224 & Bus US 30) & Delphos (Bus US 30) would like a piece of this action.

Re Jackson, I recall it never was especially well signed (typical for business routes in Ohio). So you're saying this sign is gone now? GMSV is old, but I remember seeing it within the past ~3 years. It wouldn't surprise me, since this one disappeared sometime between 2013 and 2018.


Re the others, I don't have time to investigate right now, but if you could show me specifically what you saw that makes you think they should be included, I'll address it when I get home in a couple weeks. Ditto for Upper Sandusky, which at one point had at least one Business 30 sign.

Both "green" US 35 signs are gone.
The only business US 35 sign I saw was this one:
