State Road 427 (SR 427) is a roughly northeast-southwest two-lane surface road between U.S. Route 6 (US 6) at Waterloo and the Ohio state line east of Hamilton. Fifteen miles in length, it is a child of U.S. Route 27 (US 27), which is now decommissioned north of Fort Wayne.

Route description[edit]

SR 427 begins in downtown Waterloo, in DeKalb County, where US 6 passes through town. It runs northeast to Hamilton, where it crosses into Steuben County. In Hamilton, it is concurrent with State Road 1 (SR 1) for less than a mile and passes to the southeast of Hamilton Lake. Leaving Hamilton, it heads east to the Ohio state line, where it meets Ohio State Route 34 into Edon, Ohio.

History[edit]

Before Interstate 69 (I-69) was completed between Fort Wayne and Auburn during the 1960s, SR 427 extended almost due south along what is now a north–south county road now identified as "Tonkel Road" in Allen county and "CR 427" between the Allen-DeKalb County line and Waterloo. That section of SR 427 was decommissioned soon after the completion of the section of I-69 that parallels that stretch of old SR 427.
