Route descriptionEdit

 
East Huntington Bridge, the southern terminus of SR 775

SR 775 begins on the East Huntington Bridge over the Ohio River at the West Virginia state line.[4][5] Here, SR 775 has its highest traffic counts; the road has an average annual daily traffic (AADT) of 18,520 vehicles based on a 2012 Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) survey.[6][7] The route heads north leaving the bridge and having an intersection with SR 7. SR 775 and SR 7 head northeasterly concurrent leaving Proctorville. The road passes near commercial and residential properties, as a three-lane highway, two-lane northbound and one-lane southbound. The highway has a traffic signal with Lawrence County Road 430 (CR 430), before becoming a two-lane highway. North of CR 403, the highway passes near residential properties and some woodland. In rural Lawrence County, SR 775 leaves SR 7 and heads towards the north-northwest. The route passes through woodland, with some houses, as a two-lane highway. The highway has a brief concurrency with SR 217, before entering the Wayne National Forest. The highway has an intersection with SR 141, at this intersection SR 775 turns northeasterly.[4][5] North of SR 141, the AADT of SR 775 drops to 200 vehicles.[6][7] The road has a T-intersection with SR 790, before turning towards the northwest and entering Gallia County. In Gallia County the highway begins to curve the north, before curving to the northeast. SR 775 has its northern terminus at a T-intersection with SR 141, in the Wayne National Forest.[4][5] The only section of highway that is concurrent with SR 7 is incorporated within the National Highway System (NHS).[8]

HistoryEdit
