Route 711's northern terminus with Interstate 80 and State Route 11 in Girard

State Route 711 (SR 711), also known as the "Robert E. Hagan Memorial Highway" between its southern terminus and US 422,[2] is a three-mile (5 km), four-lane, north–south, limited access freeway. It is located in Mahoning and Trumbull counties. Its termini are I-680 to the south and the I-80 / SR 11 interchange to the north. The north-end ramps are directional, only serving travelers to and from the east via Interstate 80 and the north via State Route 11.

History[edit]

Local leaders first suggested a highway linking Girard and Youngstown in 1968. Originally the four-lane divided highway ended at US 422 and Burlington Street when it was completed in 1971. Money wasn't made available for the US 422 to I-80 connector until 1999, and construction on the section began in 2002. The project was finished in 2005, opening October 24 of that year,[3] with a total cost of about $60 million.
