State Route 587 (SR 587) is a north–south state route in the northwestern quadrant of the U.S. state of Ohio. The highway's southern terminus is at SR 53 in the census-designated place of McCutchenville about 5 miles (8.0 km) southeast of New Riegel. Its northern terminus is at a T-intersection with SR 18 in the southeastern corner of the city of Fostoria.

Route description[edit]

SR 587 is located in the extreme northern portion of Wyandot County and the southwestern quadrant of Seneca County. This highway is not included as a component of the National Highway System, a network of highways deemed most important for the country's economy, mobility and defense.[4]

History[edit]

SR 587 was designated in 1937. The highway originally consisted of today's Wyandot County Road 35 from SR 67 approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) southwest of Sycamore to the intersection marking SR 587's southern terminus at SR 53 in McCutchenville and the entirety of the current SR 587.[1][2] In 1965, the portion of SR 587 southeast of McCutchenville was removed from the state highway system.[5][6] Jurisdiction of this stretch of roadway was transferred to Wyandot County, who then designated it as County Road 35.[7]
