State Route 4 (SR 4, Ohio 4) is a major north–south state highway in Ohio. Its southern terminus is at U.S. Route 42 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and its northern terminus is at U.S. Route 6 in Sandusky, Ohio. Its path is nearly ruler-straight for many miles. Some portions of the route are still marked as Dixie Highway. The northern portion was constructed by the Columbus and Sandusky Turnpike Company, see Turnpike Lands.
State Route 4 begins in Cincinnati, running through Dayton, then joining Interstate 70, with which it runs concurrently for over three miles. The route then goes through Springfield and continues to Marion. It then travels to Bucyrus, finally heading northeast to Sandusky, where it ends.
