U.S. Route 35 is a United States highway running from northern Indiana to Charleston, West Virginia. Within the state of Ohio, it runs roughly southeast-northwest from the state line near New Paris, Ohio to the Silver Memorial Bridge across the Ohio River at Gallipolis.

Route description[edit]

US 35 enters Ohio from the west in concurrency with Interstate 70, departing at that route's Exit 1 just across the state line.The road angles southeasterly into Eaton, then runs due east-west to Drexel, at which point it becomes a limited access expressway. It continues as a freeway through the east side of Dayton, except a small portion east of Dayton, also bypassing Xenia to the south, Jamestown to the north, and Washington Court House to the south. It then bypasses Chillicothe to the north and east, partially in concurrency with US 23, then angles southeasterly again, with the freeway portion ending at Richmond Dale. From there southeasterly and easterly to Gallipolis, it is a divided highway with a mix of interchanges and at-grade intersections.


Before the adoption of the U.S. highway system in 1926, the route was known in its entirety as SR 11.[2] By 1966, the first freeway portion of the route began construction, comprising the Chillicothe bypass.[3] Freeway portions on the east side of Dayton and south side of Xenia were completed by 1971,[4] and around Washington Court House by 1974.[5]
