Route description[edit]

SR 598 north of US 30 in Galion

Along its path, SR 598 travels through eastern Crawford County, northwestern Richland County and southwestern Huron County. SR 598 is not included as a part of the National Highway System (NHS). The NHS is a network of routes identified as being most important for the economy, mobility and defense of the nation.[6]

History[edit]

SR 598 was applied in 1937. The highway was originally routed along its present alignment from its southern terminus in Galion to its junction with SR 98 northeast of Tiro.[1][2] One year later, SR 598 was extended to the northeast along a previously un-numbered roadway, then northerly along a brief overlap of SR 61 and a short state highway that had carried the SR 289 designation to its current northern terminus at what was then the predecessor to SR 103, SR 194.[7]
