State Route 795 (SR 795) is an east–west state highway in northwestern Ohio, a U.S. state. The western terminus of SR 795 is at US 20 in Perrysburg, at the signalized intersection that doubles as the northern terminus of SR 199. Its eastern terminus is at a signalized intersection with SR 51 about 0.5 miles (0.80 km) southeast of Millbury.

SR 795, which was created in the late 1930s, serves a number of small towns in northern Wood County. From just west of its interchange with I-75 near Perrysburg to just west of its interchange with I-280 near Walbridge, the route is a four-lane divided highway. This four-lane section is used as an alternative to the Ohio Turnpike. In 2005 and 2006, SR 795 was one of the main detour routes for I-280 during the construction of the Maumee River Crossing.[citation needed] Along its path, SR 795 passes close to Toledo Executive Airport, a small airport near Walbridge.

Route description[edit]

SR 795 runs through the northeastern corner of Wood County and a small portion of western Ottawa County. The segment of SR 795 that runs between I-75 and I-280 is included within the National Highway System, a system of highways that are determined to be the most important for the economy, mobility and defense of the country.[2][3]

History[edit]

SR 795 was designated in 1937. It was routed approximately along its current alignment between US 20 in Perrysburg and the former SR 102 (current SR 51) near Millbury.[4][5] By 1971, the stretch of SR 795 from just west of I-75 to just west of the I-280 interchange was upgraded from two lanes to a four-lane divided expressway.[6][7] This upgrade included the construction of viaducts over a pair of parallel railyards, as well as a parclo interchange at East Broadway Street (which previously conveyed the route between Indiana Avenue and Moline-Martin Road) in Moline.
