State Route 778 (SR 778, OH 778) is a very short north–south state highway in northern Ohio. The southern terminus of SR 778 is at SR 101 approximately 9 miles (14 km) northeast of Tiffin. The highway's northern terminus is at SR 19 about 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Green Springs. The route was created in 1942 and has not changed since.

Route description[edit]

Existing entirely within Seneca County's Adams Township, SR 778 is not included as a part of the National Highway System.[2] SR 778 has a AADT of 1150.[3]

SR 778's short journey begins at the intersection of SR 101 and County Road 43 (CR 43), and travels north, taking over for the county road. The two-lane connector route travels primarily amidst farmland, passing a small group of trees and a couple of homes on the west side of the roadway prior to arriving at its endpoint at the intersection of SR 19 and CR 44.[1][4] As SR 778 enters the intersection from the south, SR 19 forms the northern and eastern legs, and CR 44 uses the western approach to the intersection.[4]

History[edit]

First appearing in 1942, SR 778 was designated along the short alignment that it currently occupies between SR 101 and SR 19. The route has not seen any significant change since its inception.[5][6] The road was repaved in 1983 and 1995.[1]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Adams Township, Seneca County.
