Overview

Interstate 277 constitutes an urban freeway connector in south Akron between I-76 at the Kenmore community and I-77 by the Firestone Park neighborhood. U.S. 224 overlaps with the entirety of I-277.

History

The early Interstate Numbering plans for Ohio outlined Interstate 80 along a corridor paralleling SR 18 between Norwalk and Youngstown via Akron. The Ohio Turnpike north was a part of Interstate 80N. During this time period, I-80 was slated to overlap with I-77 southeast from Ghent to a point south of Downtown Akron. By 1962, I-80 shifted northward to Cleveland and I-80S was proposed along what is now Interstate 76 through Akron. I-277 was the link between I-80S and I-77 across south Akron.

The western leg of I-277 joining I-76 with Waterloo Road (former U.S. 224) was open to traffic by 1962. The remainder east to I-77 through Akron was completed by 1970.
