History[edit]

When it debuted in 1925, State Route 248 was a spur route off of State Route 7 that served the community of Reedsville. This original routing consisted of the entirety of the current State Route 248, along with the portion of the current State Route 124 running from the State Route 248 junction northeast to Reedsville.[1][2] In 1934, State Route 124 was extended north from Portland. In the process, took over what was the portion of State Route 248 from their current junction northeast to Reedsville, and then points north. Consequently, State Route 248 became a connector route, and took on the form that it has today.[5][6]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Meigs County.
