State Route 269 (SR 269) is a north–south state highway in the north central portion of the U.S. state of Ohio. Its southern terminus is at SR 4 on the HuronSeneca county line nearly seven miles (11 km) south of Bellevue, and its northern terminus is at the entrance to East Harbor State Park near Marblehead.

History[edit]

SR 269 was first designated in 1928 albeit on a much shorter route than it runs today. The original two-mile-long (3.2 km) route served as a cutoff to the Sandusky Bay Bridge on SR 2 and SR 12 (modern-day U.S. Route 6).[2][3] In 1935, the route was extended south to end in Castalia at SR 12 (now on a different route than it was in 1928) and SR 101.[4][5] Two years later, SR 269 was extended much further south through Bellevue to its current southern terminus at SR 4. The extension of SR 296 to SR 4 lead to the deletion of SR 296 as SR 269 was routed along the latter's entire route between SR 4 and Bellevue.[6][7]

The route was extended north c. 1969 after SR 2 was moved onto the new Thomas Edison Bridge over the Sandusky Bay. SR 269 utilized the old Bay Bridge and followed the former SR 240 to East Harbor State Park.[8][9] Though the Bay Bridge was closed in 1985, SR 269 would still be officially designated on the approach routes until SR 269 was moved onto the SR 2 freeway, the Edison Bridge, and a former spur route of SR 269 by 1997.[10][11][12]
