Interstate 77 (I-77) is an Interstate Highway in the eastern United States that runs from South Carolina to Ohio. The highways crosses into Ohio on the Marietta–Williamstown Interstate Bridge over the Ohio River near Marietta. The northern terminus is in Cleveland at the junction with I-90.

Route description

Entering from West Virginia at Marietta via the Marietta–Williamstown Interstate Bridge, I-77 passes through rolling Appalachian terrain.

The interchange with I-70 at Cambridge was noted on the cover of the 1969 Ohio Department of Highways official highway map as being the "World's Largest Interchange", covering over 300 acres (1.2 km2) of land.

Other major Interstate Highways I-77 connects with in Ohio are I-76, I-80 (Ohio Turnpike), and I-90. The interchange with the Ohio Turnpike was completed December 3, 2001, [1] [2] providing direct access; previously, traffic had to exit at Ohio State Route 21 to get to the Turnpike.

I-77 is also known as the "Vietnam Veterans' of America Highway" in Ohio, [3] and the Willow Freeway in Greater Cleveland. [4]

History

Officially designated to run from Port Huron, Michigan, to Charlotte, North Carolina, I-77 appeared on the original Interstate system route numbering plan in 1957. The part of I-94 from Detroit northeast to Port Huron was originally planned as I-77 in 1957; the current I-77 was I-79. [5] When the current I-79 was added in Pennsylvania, the I-77 designation was moved to its current route, but the I-77 in Michigan also remained in the 1958 numbering plan, [6] so the designation followed I-90 and I-75 in order to keep it continuous; the designation north of I-77's westward turn was to have been Interstate 177. [7] I-77 in Michigan later became part of I-94.
