SR 66 Truck is a truck route which bypasses a low railroad bridge along SR 66 in southern Defiance. Beginning at a signalized intersection with South Jefferson Avenue (SR 66), it heads west on Downs Street through a residential neighborhood. At South Clinton Street, SR 111, SR 111 Truck becomes concurrent with SR 66 Truck and both head northwest along Deatrick Street passing a supermarket and three sets of railroad tracks at-grade. At Baltimore Street (former SR 424), the two truck routes turn northeast onto Holgate Avenue paralleling the Maumee River. After heading through a residential neighborhood of the city, the road bends to the east and transitions to West Third Street. After passing under a railroad bridge, it passes numerous businesses and city facilities before reaching SR 111 again at the intersection of Third Street and Clinton Street. While SR 111 Truck ends, SR 66 Truck continues on South Clinton Street with SR 111 for one block before ending at SR 15/SR 18/SR 66.
