Starting/ending point: Hiram (Jct. Ohio 82/305/700)
Basic route (some small deviations, especially in Youngstown):
SR 700 NB to SR 87 EB to SR 608 SB to SR 528 SB to Parkman-Nelson Rd
SB (south continuation) to SR 305 EB to Warren-Burton Rd EB (old US
422) to US 422 EB through Warren into Youngstown...
Lots of circular routes around Youngstown, most involving the I-680/US
422/US 62/SR 7/SR 193 downtown loop and and others involving at-grade
US 422 and I-80/SR 11 ( http://www.roadfan.com/yngrd.html has details
from the previous excursion)...
Then I-80 WB to SR 44 NB then cutting the corner on local roads to SR
(This entire route is within the pp. 42-43 spread of the Ohio DeLorme
atlas if you're following along, convenient for writing this report
Details of note:
- Many end photos
- Photos of the only two-lane US 422 between Cleveland and Youngstown
(4 miles around the SR 700 section)
- Middlefield NW bypass construction (I also have photos from earlier
in the year to be developed) - no word as to any route designation
- Many shields in Parkman (Jct US 422/SR 88/168/528)
- Tried photographing US 422 between Parkman and SR 282 where the EB
alignment is much more hilly than the WB (original vs addition) -
we'll see how it comes out....
- Nothing much of note in Warren except a relatively new SR 82 shield
east of downtown which looked like it was made in a year more recent
than when SR 82 was moved to the bypass, plus a SR 422 error where old
SR 5 met it and SR 169 on the east side of town
- Nothing much more than the sign etc retakes in Youngstown, with the
major exception of exploring current/under-construction SR 711
...I'll let Sandor explain this one :) Otherwise, the only other
mention is that an erroneous US 289 shield within the downtown loop
spotted on Road Trip III was gone (no doubt due to a pavement milling
project on the western part)
That's all from my perspective...I will send this now so it's waiting
for Sandor when he gets back to Columbus :)

I still will, just not in its own post like I did this time (this was
my first crossposting between the two groups, and I did remember to
mention m.t.r in the GLR posting). I didn't realize that Sandor was
going to reply there and not here, and he had all the Ohio 711 walking
journey details which I mentioned briefly in my posts. Had he replied
here, I might not have mentioned GLR here at all.
Me three. :P
