State Route 562 is a limited-access highway, or expressway in Southwest Ohio. Its western terminus is at Interstate 75 and its eastern terminus is at Interstate 71. It is generally locally referred to as the Norwood Lateral Expressway, since most of its length is in the suburban city of Norwood.


State Route 562 (the Norwood Lateral) was completed in 1962.[2]
