U.S. Route 62 (US 62) is a United States Numbered Highway spanning through Ohio from Aberdeen to Hubbard. Near Killbuck, in Amish Country, it is also marked as an Ohio Byway.

Route description[edit]

US 62 in Martinsburg

US 62 enters Ohio from Kentucky, crossing the Ohio River at Aberdeen. After the river crossing, the highway follows US 52 until Ripley and US 68 until just east of Georgetown. From there, US 62 enters the towns of Russellville, Hillsboro, and Washington Court House. In Washington Court House, US 62 meets up with State Route 3 (SR 3) and continues all the way into Columbus, passing through the towns of Mount Sterling, Orient, Harrisburg, and Grove City. After heading toward downtown Columbus, US 62 diverts from SR 3 onto US 40 (Broad Street) for a few blocks to Nelson Road. US 62 runs concurrently with Interstate 670 (I-670) near Port Columbus International Airport until the eastern side of I-270 where US 62 heads toward Gahanna, New Albany, Johnstown, Utica, Millersburg, and Navarre. About 2.6 miles (4.2 km) north of Navarre, US 62 joins up with US 30 into Canton, where US 62 heads north along I-77. The highway passes West Lawn Cemetery and the President William McKinley memorial and tomb in Canton. At exit 107B on I-77, US 62 heads northeast to Alliance, and Youngstown. It leaves Ohio near Hubbard and enters Pennsylvania near the interchange for I-80

Future[edit]

In Ohio, there are plans to reroute US 62 onto a divided highway from Alliance to Salem, part of a larger relocation of both US 62 and SR 14, then from downtown Youngstown to I-80 as part of the "Hubbard Arterial". Parts of the highway have long been completed to the north of Alliance and Salem; the portion northwest of Alliance is known in documents as US 62T, while the portion north of Salem not already carrying US 62 is known as SR 14T; neither carries a posted route, instead only carrying trailblazer markers indicating routes intersected at the termini.

U.S. Route 62 Temporary (US 62T) is a 4.67-mile-long (7.52 km) bypass around the city of Alliance. US 62T, a four-lane highway, begins at US 62 (Atlantic Boulevard NE/State Street) in Stark County. US 62T then has a highway ramp at Beeson Street. Exit ramps provide access from US 62T to Beeson St NE, and then the highway merges onto State Route 225 (SR 225) and ends.

Although the US 62T designation is unsigned, signs on the road read "To West US 62 / To State Route 225 North". The entire route is built to freeway standards with a speed limit of 60 miles per hour (95 km/h).

US 62T is planned to extend to Youngstown by 2030.[citation needed]

The entire route is in Alliance, Stark County. All exits are unnumbered.
