Route description[edit]

Along its path, SR 700 passes through northern Portage County and southern Geauga County. No portion of this highway is included within the National Highway System (NHS). The NHS is a network of routes deemed to be most important for the economy, mobility and defense of the nation.[5]

History[edit]

The SR 700 designation was applied in 1942. It has utilized the same routing through Portage and Geauga Counties since its inception, when it replaced a former portion of SR 80. The highway has been paved for its entire lifespan.[1][2]
