History[edit]

Southbound near Burbank, Ohio
  • 1972 – Certified as State Route 83[2] when this designation replaced that of State Route 76 (which was removed to prevent confusion with Interstate 76 after its completion). At this time, the designation was also routed along a new divided highway south and west of Coshocton.[2]

Before 1960[edit]

  • 1924 – Original route established[3] from Ashtabula to the Pennsylvania state line south of Conneaut.[2]
  • 1926 – Rerouted through Kingsville (village east of Ashtabula) along the current State Route 84 alignment.[2]
  • 1938 – Rerouted from Ashtabula to Kelloggsville (village south of Conneaut) along previously unnumbered roads; alignment through Kingsville certified as State Route 84.[2]
  • 1960 – Route decertified.[2]

Route 83C[edit]

Route 83C is an unsigned, ¾-mile[1] route connecting SR 83 with SR 10 in North Ridgeville. Route 83C runs west from SR 83 along Butternut Ridge Road, and then north on Lorain Road to intersect SR 10. SR 83C then intersects Chestnut Ridge Road and runs eastbound along Chestnut Ridge Road until intersecting SR 83 again, where SR 83C ends. Route 83C exists because SR 83 bridges over SR 10 and would not have intersected SR 10 otherwise. The route is marked "To SR 10" westbound and "To SR 83" eastbound.
