State Route 723 (SR 723) is a very short state highway located in east-central Ohio. Having a length of just 0.8 miles (1.3 km) and located just southwest of Cambridge, the route serves as a connector between I-70 at its exit 176 and the concurrency of US 22 and US 40.

Route description[edit]

The short SR 723 commences at I-70's exit 176, a trumpet interchange in Guernsey County's Cambridge Township. Heading north from I-70 as a four-lane highway, SR 723 passes over the CSX railway and crosses the city limits of Cambridge. A short distance later, SR 723 comes to an end as it meets US 22 and US 40 at a signalized T-intersection.[2]

SR 723 is not considered a part of the National Highway System, a network of highways throughout the country that are deemed vital for the nation's economy, defense and mobility.[3]

History[edit]

The roadway that carries SR 723 was constructed by 1961.[1] For the first few years of its existence, SR 723 served as the western end of a section of I-70 that was complete.[4][5][6][7] By 1967, I-70 was navigable in both directions from SR 723.[8] Since then, no major changes have occurred to the route.

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Guernsey County.
