State Route 725 (SR 725) is an east–west state highway in the southwestern portion of the U.S. state of Ohio. Its western terminus is at the Indiana state line approximately 9 miles (14 km) west of Camden at the eastern terminus of Indiana State Road 44; and its eastern terminus is at US 42 just south of Spring Valley.[4]

Route description[edit]

The portion of SR 725 between Heincke Road and SR 741 in Miamisburg is designated as the "Marine Corporal Paul W. Zanowick II Memorial Highway",[5] in honor of a Miamisburg High School graduate, nicknamed "Rocky", who was killed in Nahre Saraj District, Helmand Province, Afghanistan on June 3, 2011.[6][7]

History[edit]

SR 725 was first commissioned in 1937 between the Indiana state line and SR 48 in Centerville.[1][2] In 1939, the route was extended east to US 42 in Spring Valley.[8][9] In 1965, the road between Miamisburg and I-75 was upgraded to a divided highway.[10][11] Between 1993 and 1995 the section of highway between I-675 and Centerville was upgraded to a divided highway.[12][13]
